Abstract:

This book investigates request strategies in Mandarin Chinese and Korean,
and is one of the first attempts to address cross-cultural strategies
employed in the speech act of requests in two non-Western languages. The
data, drawn from role-plays and naturally recorded conversations,
complement each other in terms of exhaustiveness and authenticity. This
study explores the similarities and differences of the request patterns
that emerged in the Chinese and Korean data, and the intricate relation
between request strategies and social factors (such as power and distance).
The findings raise questions about the influence of methodology on data,
and the applicability of so called universals to East Asian languages. They
also offer new insights into generally held ideas of directness and
requesting behaviours in Chinese and Korean, and the problems of
cross-cultural and cross-linguistic communication.This research is
suggestive for the disciplines of cross-cultural pragmatics, cross-cultural
communication, contrastive linguistics, applied linguistics and discourse
analysis.
