Impoliteness in Language: Studies on Its Interplay with Power in Theory and Practice (Language, Power and Social Process [LPSP] v. 21)
By: Miriam A. Locher (editor), Derek Bousfield (editor)Paperback
2 - 4 weeks availability
Drawing on a wide range of empirical data, the volume presents a thorough discussion of impoliteness and power in language. It addresses the enormous imbalance that exists between academic interest in politeness phenomena when compared to impoliteness phenomena, and it offers inspiration for research on impoliteness, conflict and aggression in many different academic fields of enquiry, both within linguistics and beyond.
