Impoliteness in the media and its reception (Iwona Benenowska)
Impoliteness in the media and its reception
The aim of the chapter is to investigate impoliteness in select samples extracted from the Polish media. The examination is threefold and encompasses the following levels of analysis: linguistic, pragmalinguistic and sociolinguistic. The data are presented from the following perspectives: the situational and linguistic background, immediate context, reflections on self-image/face of the sender and on social norms, intentions of the sender and the addressee, emotions and hierarchical interpersonal relationship (including the option of blocking a possible reply). Social reception of the impolite behaviour and the motivation behind it constitute an important part of the study.
Keywords: linguistic impoliteness, interaction, interpersonal relations, reception
