(Im)politesse, coopération et principes d’inférence

Abstract : This paper provides a theoretical exploration of the notion of politeness in its interaction with Grice’s Cooperative Principle and Sperber and Wilson’s Relevance Principle. It is argued that politeness, as well as those two inference principles, are underpinned by a general aspiration to interpersonal harmony, and that the pragmatic mechanisms to which they relate operate at two distinct analytical levels.
