Kádár, Daniel Z. (2009) Questions on Discursive Politeness Research – A Research Report. Research Report. LRPG, Sheffield, UK.

This piece of writing is a ‘research report’ rather than a proper paper. By this definition I
mean that instead of presenting well-formed arguments this work tries to problematise the
‘field’ of discursive politeness research. The questions made here are self-reflexive in nature, and
follow Foucaultian (1970) logic to some extent, that is I focus on some aspects of the discursive
theorisation that seem to be problematic to me in spite of the fact that I define myself as
a devout discursive researcher. The title of this work, Reflections on the Critical Turn, also refers to
its self-reflexive scope.
