Example text

For instance, if the speaker estimates D, P and R as marginal, the speaker may use either a simple bald-on-record strategy or a speech without a redressive action. If the interlocutors have high familiarity, if the speaker has higher status than the hearer, or if the hearer gets the benefit by taking the task, the imposition on the hearer is perceived as small. In regard to the positive and negative politeness, increases in distance between the speaker and the hearer, the speaker’s relative power, and the imposition of the act will result in corresponding increases in the weightiness of the act.

A number of studies have reported empirical evidence of Brown and Levinson’s theory. For instance, Blum-Kulka, Danet, and Gherson (1985) report that speakers with relatively high power are less polite than the speakers with relatively low power in everyday conversation, an evidence of the politeness ‒ power nexus. Brown and Gilman (1989) find that the level of politeness is commensurate with the level of imposition of the task. Hymes (1986) notes the value in linguistic studies of the universal framework embedded in Brown and Levinson’s theory.

Rationality refers the reasoning process for deciding the specific mode of politeness, based on the individual situation and the speaker’s goals. The rationality principle means that speakers tend to choose the course of action leading to the most effective outcome with the least effort. What affects the speaker’s perception of the level of risk of losing face? Brown and Levinson (1987) argue that the amount of politeness and the type of politeness strategy the speaker employs depend on weightiness, which is calculated by the speaker according to three social variables: (1) the distance between the speaker and the hearer, D(S,H); (2) the relative power between the communicator, P(S,H); and (3) the imposition of the task/act (Rx).
