Conventionalised Politeness (Updating the Previous Post)

Those who have attended the 8th International Conference on Politeness at Huddersfield University (U.K.) must have found all the plenary sessions very lively and interesting. In relation to at least two of the themes discussed on conventionalised politeness and impoliteness by Prof Culpeper and Prof Terkourafi, I’d like to post an earlier written paper which I found rather difficult to retrieve from the e=database. The ease or difficulty of retrieval depends, of course, on when your library started to subscribe to that particular database. The paper is:
Mills, M. (1992). Conventionalized politeness in Russian requests: A pragmatic view of indirectness. Russian Linguistics 16 (1): 65-78.

Followers and members of this group who have encountered difficulties in retrieving it but are interested have a copy, please drop me an email (see address at the top).

    Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me on Internet explorer.
    Superb Blog!

    Wonderful blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little
    lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or
    go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any ideas? Kudos!
