内容記述(抄録等)This article examines previous studies of compliments and compliment responses in different cultures and languages. Compliments are speech acts that are used to negotiate solidarity in daily conversation, which are related to the concepts of face work in politeness theory (Brown and Levinson, 1978; Herbert, 1986; Holmes, 1986). They are formulaic since particular positive verbs and adjectives tend to be used (Holmes, 1986; Manes and Wolfson, 1981; Wolfson, 1981). However, practices associated with giving and receiving compliments differ across cultures, and this can become a source of cross-cultural miscommunication. For example, Western speakers tend to use and accept compliments more often than Asian speakers. In addition, some speakers might compliment different objects; for example, Polish people tend to give compliments on possessions while Americans tend to compliment people’s characteristics, especially in conversation with someone close to the speaker (Barnlund and Araki, 1985; Herbert, 1991). Japanese tend to give compliments on the ability and work of acquaintances rather than people with whom they have a close relationship (Barnlund and Araki, 1985; Daikuhara, 1986). Therefore, this article emphasizes the importance of understanding different uses of compliments among cultures because speakers might misunderstand each other in cross-cultural communication.
