Abstract:

One of the main contributions of this important book is that it offers a
thorough survey of the theoretical and empirical developments that have
occurred in the area of (im)politeness in different regions of the
Spanish-speaking world. Additionally, the book advances the field with new
empirical research on linguistic (im)politeness, and silence and
(im)politeness, in a range of (non)institutional contexts, as well as with
new perspectives for the study of (im)politeness. A closing chapter by the
editors provides an assessment of salient trends in the area and directions
for future research.

"Research on Politeness in the Spanish-Speaking World" is essential reading
for senior undergraduates and graduate students in Spanish pragmatics and
Spanish linguistics, sociolinguistics, and discourse analysis. The volume
is also very useful to English-speaking scholars in the general field of
pragmatics who are not proficient in Spanish but require access to these
empirical studies.
