Cooperative Communication Strategies: Observations in a Black Community.
Garner, Thurmon
Journal of Black Studies, v14 n2 p233-50 Dec 1983
Examines two strategies which Blacks use to bring about cooperation in the Black community: (1) "indirection," which makes use of humorous messages, avoidance, and signifying to reduce conflicts, and (2) "neutralization," which involves the use of verbal justifications and excuses to stabilize situations in which disagreements may arise over unusual behaviors.
