Book description

When is language considered 'impolite'? Is impolite language only used for anti-social purposes? Can impolite language be creative? What is the difference between 'impoliteness' and 'rudeness'? Grounded in naturally-occurring language data and drawing on findings from linguistic pragmatics and social psychology, Jonathan Culpeper provides a fascinating account of how impolite behaviour works. He examines not only its forms and functions but also people's understandings of it in both public and private contexts. He reveals, for example, the emotional consequences of impoliteness, how it shapes and is shaped by contexts, and how it is sometimes institutionalised. This book offers penetrating insights into a hitherto neglected and poorly understood phenomenon. It will be welcomed by students and researchers in linguistics and social psychology in particular.

Reviews

‘Stimulating and scholarly … a significant contribution to the growing research area of rudeness and impoliteness discourse.'

Janet Holmes - Victoria University of Wellington

‘Using diverse examples of rudeness, it will fascinate students of communication and linguistics as it addresses important controversies in the study of politeness.'

Karen Tracy - University of Colorado, Boulder

'Culpeper’s outstanding book documents that the time is ripe for us to address the urgent social problem of violence in language. In proposing an insightful theory of impoliteness, Culpeper accurately reads classic and contemporary linguistic theories and analyses a wide range of oral and written impoliteness events.'
