Human Communication Research, v28 n3 p451-63 Jul 2002
Examines how evaluator sex, target responsibility and effort, and advice content influenced evaluations of advice given bluntly, with aggravating facework, or with mitigating facework. Notes advice was described as directed to a student upset about failing an exam. Finds that facework had a substantial main effect on evaluations of advice, with mitigating facework producing the most positive evaluations. (SG)
