Politeness in Family: Requests
Pragmatics is the branch of linguistics that deals with the way language is used in the everyday life of subjects. Language describes and acts. The linguistic act is analyzed into a phonetic, selective and hyperactive act. Linguistic acts are categorized into affirmative, directive, binding, expressive and declarative. Requests are a special kind of directional acts. In the international literature, the formulation of requests within the family has been approached pragmatically, depending on the role, something that does not seem to have happened in our country.
This dissertation investigated the way in which the request is made among the members of today’s Greek family according to the perceived gravity of the request.
The analysis has shown that the role of the individual affects the perceived gravity of the request. The way in which the request is made, however, is determined not only by the role of the individual but also by the overall context of the linguistic act as it is shaped by the interpersonal and cultural knowledge that emerges within the linguistic act and varies with the appropriation with positive or negative face courtesy and the use of directness or conventional and non-conventional indirectness.
