Offers and Requests: Performance by Japanese Learners of English.
Fukushima, Saeko
World Englishes, v9 n3 p317-25 Win 1990
A comparison of native and nonnative (Japanese) English speakers' expressions for offers and requests found that Japanese subjects were typically too direct in most situations and sounded rude, even when they intended to be polite. This suggests that the pragmatic competence of Japanese learners of English needs to be reinforced in language instruction. (nine references) (Author/CB)
