Subject:  RE: Bakhtin's concept of "parody"


I am interested in analyzing transcripts of individual interviews with
participants telling their life stories from a Bakhtinian perspective.
I am basing much of this work on Wortham's Narratives In Action
(2001).  So far I have found that my participants use double-voicing
often when recounting the speech of powerful people who, according to
my participants, abused their power.  I am interested in a discussion
of others' experiences with double voicing in discourse analysis,
especially, how this experience informs our understanding of Bakhtin's
thoughts on parody.

Subject:  Hungarian apologies


I have a question for native speakers of Hungarian, about the speech
act of apologizing. Most studies recognize three apology types,
expressions of regret, offers of apology and requests for
forgiveness. Suszczynska (1999 - Journal of Pragmatics 31
p. 1053-1065) suggests a fourth, forstalling anger. I'd like to know a
bit more about this.

If someone were to offend you by for example
a. saying something at a meeting that you interpret as a personal insult
b. forgetting an important meeting with you
c. running into your car and denting the door slightly
d. bumping into you in a department store
(situations taken from Cohen & Olshtain 1981)

and they said 'Please don't be angry' would you feel that they had
apologized to you?

If not, what more would they have to say in order for you to feel that
you had been apologized to?

I will post a summary, if I get enough responses.

thanks,
Fay
