"... there is much to be gained from revisiting this founding work of the discursive approach to politeness in pursuit of a more coherent approach in the field of politeness research." Michael Haugh, Griffith University, on Linguist List, June 27, 2006
"The strenght of the articles is their diversity of subject matter and their accessibility in discussing complex and sometimes obscure terminology. The authors bring together many diverse strands of the study of politeness, allowing more percise and detailed insights. [...] Politness in Language deserves to be reissued as a valuable contribution to politeness research in the 21st Century."Ian Walkinshaw in: Journal of Politeness Research 3/2/2007 "... there is much to be gained from revisiting this founding work of the discursive approach to politeness in pursuit of a more coherent approach in the field of politeness research."
