Goldsmith, Daena J.; MacGeorge, Erina L.
Human Communication Research, v26 n2 p234-63 Apr 2000
Tests the effects of relationship and politeness on perceived regard for face and advice effectiveness among undergraduate students. Finds that regard for positive face is associated with the perceived effectiveness, appropriateness, helpfulness, and sensitivity of advice given; however, the factors normally expected to account for perceived regard for face were not found to be good predictors.
