Sobre o livro
This book explores the semantics and pragmatics of honorifics, expressions that indicate the degree of formality that a speaker feels is required in interacting with another person. The analysis is applied to a variety of empirical examples, particularly from Japanese and Thai, and explores a wide range of related philosophical issues.
