Friendship through Interaction and Interaction through Friendship: Manifestations of Positive Politeness and Footing Changes in the Interaction of Two Friends Playing Chess
Shigenaga, Yasumasa
Advances in Language and Literary Studies, v7 n5 p45-58 Oct 2016
The present study uses a video recording of two friends playing chess to observe, through the concept of "positive politeness, what strategies the participants employ to construct and maintain their relationship as close friends during an activity that includes moments of heightened tension. The study also examines the dynamics of the particular interaction through the frameworks of "footing" and "recipient design".
