Face and impoliteness at the intersection with emotions: A corpus-based study in Turkish

This paper employs a corpus-based approach to examine the bases of impoliteness via the nature of emotions involved in offending event(s), with a view of teasing apart face concerns from other factors in the management of relations. Drawing from (social) psychology, we consider how emotions can open a window on discerning what type of impolite acts they appear as responses to and what impolite acts they motivate. The occurrence of 20 emotion words in the narration of offensive events in the narrative genre of the METU Turkish Corpus are analyzed in terms of the bases of impoliteness with insights from the rapport management model (Spencer-Oatey 2002, 2005, 2007). The analysis reveals links between certain emotion categories and face, sociality rights and values. The study ends with the discussion of two sample extracts from the data for the identification of the components of the script-like nature of emotions in impoliteness.


Reshaping human intention in Human-Robot Interactions by robot moves A comparative analysis of HMM and OOM methods
Durdu, Akif; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref; Yilmaz, Alper (John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2019-01-01)
This paper outlines the methodology and experiments associated with the reshaping of human intentions based on robot movements within Human-Robot Interactions (HRIs). Although studies on estimating human intentions are well studied in the literature, reshaping intentions through robot-initiated interactions is a new significant branching in the field of HRI. In this paper, we analyze how estimated human intentions can intentionally change through cooperation with mobile robots in real Human-Robot environmen...
Feel the emotion
Şener Pedgley, Bahar (Informa UK Limited, 2008-12-01)
There is growing interest in the role of emotion when considering communication in the workplace. This work has most often considered workers in front-line service positions in investigations of emotional labor, and human service workers in investigations of empathy and emotional work. In this study, we consider processes of both emotional labor and emotional work in the financial planning profession. Financial planners occupy a role requiring ongoing relationships with clients, conversations about the ofte...

Pre-Service Science Teachers' Teaching Self-Efficacy in Relation to Personality Traits and Academic Self-Regulation
Senler, Burcu; Sungur, Semra (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2013-01-01)
The aim of this study is to examine the relationship among pre-service science teachers' personality traits, academic self-regulation and teaching self-efficacy by proposing and testing a conceptual model. For the specified purpose, 1794 pre-service science teachers participated in the study. The Teachers' Sense of Efficacy Scale, the NEO Five-Factor Inventory, and the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire were administered to assess pre-service science teachers' teaching self-efficacy, personalit...
Towards a new typology of coordinated wh-questions
Citko, Barbara; Gracanın Yüksek, Martına (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2013-03-01)
In this paper, we develop a new typology of multiple wh-questions with coordinated wh-pronouns. We motivate the existence of three distinct structures for such questions: one mono-clausal and two bi-clausal. We use four kinds of diagnostics to determine which of the three structures is available in a particular language: the availability of both multiple wh-questions and wh-questions with coordinated wh-pronouns, coordination of two argument wh-phrases, transitivity restrictions and superiority effects.
