Hi. We're now going to look at politeness
in some real language data. As a matter of fact, in this
particular module, we're going to work, work with our informants
a little bit differently. Because politeness is slightly
less a matter of languages. In every language, you can express different kinds
of politeness in different ways. And that means that the answers
our informants give in, in our videos now is not necessarily
just about their language. It might also be about their culture, and it might also definitely
be about their personality. Still, we're going to find
a lot of interesting variation between the different speakers. What we did is we gave three scenarios,
three small little stories to each of our speakers, and we asked them
how people would react in such scenarios. That's the kind of thing
you are going to hear. So our first scenario is that you go
to a restaurant with a friend and you are supposed to be the person who was
going to pay, but you forgot your wallet. What would you say to your friend? >> [FOREIGN]
>> And how could your friend respond to that? >> [FOREIGN]
>> Okay, second scenario. Your best friend is getting married,
and it's a few weeks from now, but you will need to take a day off for
that in order to attend. You go to your boss to ask for
this day off. What would you say? >> [FOREIGN]
>> Okay, and now suppose your boss doesn't want to
give you this day off, what would he say? >> [FOREIGN]
>> Okay, third scenario. Your neighbor has organized a party,
and you were supposed to come. You promised to come even, but
then you forgot because you were too busy. What would you say to your neighbor? >> [FOREIGN]
>> And what could your neighbor respond to that? >> [FOREIGN]
>> Okay. Thank you.
