Item description for Interlanguage Refusals: A Cross-Cultural Study of Japanese-English (Studies on Language Acquisition, 15) (Studies on Language Acquisition, 15) by Susan M. Gass...

Face-threatening speech acts such as refusals present particular problems for all human beings. These problems are exacerbated when individuals are not familiar with the culture in which these speech acts must be performed and do not have the communicative or linguistic facility to fully express their meanings. This book takes an in-depth look at the speech act of refusals as performed in English by native speakers of Japanese.

Interlanguage Refusals:A Cross-Cultural Study of Japanese-En  Mar 21, 2000
I do confess that I am fascinated through reading the wholebook which reveals the politeness in different angles, one fromWestern perpective and the other from much Oriental one. To some extent, the author has excellent knowledge and experience the cultures of the two languages. This book is extremely helpful for my teaching and research. A word of appreciation to both the authors and the publisher.END
