Intercultural Problems in Teaching Forms of Address to Polish Learners of English as a Second Language.
Ronowicz, Edmund A.
Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, v15 n1 p85-94 1992
This paper presents a comparative analysis of Polish and English forms of addressing people and the sociocultural rules of their use. It is pointed out that numerous similarities in the repertoires of English and Polish forms of address lead Polish English-as-a-Second-Language learners to assume wrongly that the similarities extend also to the sociocultural rules of use.
