Spanish Speakers Apologizing in English: A Cross-Cultural Pragmatic Study.
Cordella, Marisa
Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, v14 n2 p115-38 1991
The speech act of apologizing in English between Chileans and Australians is examined in terms of the frequency, distribution, and function of apology-strategies. It is argued that positive politeness strategies are more frequently used in Spanish than English, and the sex of the apologizer and recipient must be considered. (41 references) (Author/LB)
