Description

Preface

The world is now referred to as a 'global village'. This presupposes the need for us to interact with human beings across innumerable cultures. Politeness which is strongly culture-based, is an important factor to be kept in mind if we are to interact with a wide range of human beings from different social and cultural backgrounds.

This book explores the notions of 'Politeness' and 'Gratitude' through the formulation of certain 'principles' and 'conditions' that characterize and distinguish the two concepts. The theory put forward points towards a need to distinguish the two concepts from each other. It also brings out the fact that various socio-psychological (even cultural) factors play a significant role in determining the use of 'Expressions of Politeness/Gratitude', in true-to-life social situations.

The book runs into five chapters. The First chapter makes a critical analysis of some literature existing in the area of Politeness and gratitude. The critical analysis lays down the premise for the theory developed in the second chapter. The Second chapter is an attempt to answer a very basic question, viz., 'why I one polite at all?' In so doing it views politeness not only from a 'social' angle as some theorists have done, but also from the individuals' angle. This chapter states certain 'principles' (PIE and PSE) and 'conditions' for answering the question stated above. The Third chapter focuses on the empirical study designed to test the principles and conditions laid down in chapter two. Chapter Four, which is divided into three sections, states the results of the empirical study along with their interpretation. Chapter Five puts forth the conclusions drawn from the study. It also makes some recommendations for future work.

I sincerely hope that the clear and lucid style will make the reading well-focused and easy to comprehend.

The book acquaints the readers with the notions of Politeness and Gratitude. Some basic principles are set out which are seen to motivate the use of expressions of Politeness and Gratitude in various social situations in Hindi Urdu speech community. A set of conditions is postulated which characterize these expressions. The theory in general not only clarifies Politeness and Gratitude but it also distinguishes between the two by way of the set of conditions, which characterize each of the two concepts. Ø Theoretical study of the notions of Politeness and Gratitude Ø Empirical study of the verbalisation of the Expressions of Politeness and Gratitude in the urban, educated Hindi-Urdu speech community Ø Empirical evidence to support the arguments presented Ø Lucid and clear style Ø It will serve as a practical guide to researches in clarifying the notions of Politeness and Gratitude, understanding the difference between the two and in understanding some of the basic principles which motivate polite expressions.

Sonia, UK.
Fantastic service! Delivery in Italy in two days!
Francesca Verna
Your custom service is great, especially Vipin. Vipin helped me locate a lost package. that was so nice!!!! I love this company. I love the cotton skirts with ruffle on the bottom. I also love how that when we place items in the shopping cart, the computer system allows them to remain in the cart until we are ready to purchase them. They don't disappear like with other on-line stores shopping cart system. Your the Best!!!
Heather Davis, USA
A true treasure vault of Bharatiya samskruti knowledge books! Thanks for this service.
Shashikant, USA
Very nice website, easy to use. Your one of the few Indian website that have an extensive collection of CD's that will ship to America.I think Indian website should expand themselves into the global community China sure has. China's market growth had to do with supply and demand. The same thing could happen to India, you just have to open the doors of India and let it happen. At least you seem to be doing that.
Donald, USA
Thank you for providing such an excellent service i recently ordered a number of books on the life and teachings of Sri Chaitanya and Sri Nityananda and Their associates, by various authors. it's very nice to find such a wide variety of Vaishnava literatures by various authors, all together on this one site, and you have made the selection and payment for the items you are selling, very easy. Shipping is included in the cost of the items - great arrangement, plus I received my order very quickly Thank you!
