One of the main contributions of this book is that it offers a detailed survey of the theoretical and empirical developments that have occurred in the area of (im)politeness in the different regions of the Spanish-speaking world, gathering together overviews by distinguished scholars. Additionally, the book advances the field with new empirical research on linguistic (im)politeness, and silence and (im)politeness, in a range of (non)institutional contexts, as well as new perspectives for the study of (im)politeness. An opening chapter by the editors provides an overview of (im)politeness theory, and a closing chapter, offers an assessment of salient trends in the area and directions for future research.
