Date: Mon, 15 Dec 1997 22:32:56 +0100 From: Mike FOX-ecki Subject: MA questionnaire by a Polish student SUBJECT: Indirect Speech Acts As A Way Of Expressing Politeness. A friend of mine is writing an MA thesis. For this purpose she needs some native speakers of English fill out a questionnaire. The questionnaire is the main part of her MA thesis. It is designed to check how native English speakers express politeness to their hearers using indirect speech acts. The If you would like to contribute to her work please send an empty message at with "ques" in a subject field and I shall mail the questionnaire to you. If you can pass on the questionnaire to anybody who might contribute to her work I am sure she would be glad as it is almost impossible to find any English native speakers at our university. At least, there are not enough of them to base her study on that. The questionnaire is aimed at anyone whose English is a native language. tafn mike ======================================================___ ___ _ _ Mike FOX-ecki //__ // // \\// irc [lisu] // // // /\\ UIN [4324037] // //__// // \\
