Overview

The book is one of the earliest studies to investigate impoliteness within a multilingual and multicultural African context. It makes significant contribution to the study of Politeness and impoliteness by investigating and comparing the discourse of people of different African cultural and linguistic backgrounds who interact within a lingua franca, which is not culturally neutral. The study demonstrates that identity is core to the understanding of impoliteness and vice versa. This book should be of great interest to students and researchers in Linguistics, Gender and a in a wide range of disciplines across humanities and social sciences. “It is an excellent intervention into the field of politeness research and impoliteness research since there has not been a great deal written on impoliteness outside the context of English, and also a dearth of research of politeness relating to African languages”. Professor Sara Mills Humanities Research Centre University of Sheffield
