Are "Powerless" Communication Strategies the Japanese Norm?
Wetzel, Patricia J.
Language in Society, v17 n4 p555-64 Dec 1988
Examines strikingly parallel claims concerning Japanese communication strategies, and female communication strategies in the West. Miscommunication between Japan and the West resembles miscommunication between the sexes in the West, suggesting not that Japanese linguistic behavior is not feminine but that it is indicative of the problems inherent in analyzing linguistic behavior in culturally bound terms.
