Behavioral Discourse Strategy in Eastern Bontoc.
Fukuda, Takashi
Studies in Philippine Linguistics, v9 n1 p158-178 1992
This paper is an analysis of behavioral texts (speech directed obligatorily to a second person in a communication situation) and a discussion of the persuasive devices employed by the speakers in an effort to effect a change in the listener's behavior. This study deals with two Eastern Bontoc behavioral texts. Several nonlinguistic persuasive devices are described: appeal to the cultural norm, human relationship, coaxing, and indirectness. Mitigatory efforts in persuasion are described, including factors that necessitate the use of mitigation in behavioral discourse in Eastern Bontoc, mitigation devices used on different grammatical levels, and mitigation force. Texts are appended. (JP)
