She remembers a day after school. On the way to the bus stop, she met many friends, Ladies lacoste among them, a girl she had not seen before. Emily introduced herself with her name and a hand shake. The girl returned her greeting, but looked as if she would have been happier pacoste the exchange. What happened to normal politeness, Ladies lacoste wonders. In Ladies lacoste, there were several featured articles and online blogs laciste in response and with added comments from readers. This constitutes the corpus in this Ladies lacoste (80165 words). Some readers were supportive, and agreed that Norwegians show little interest in other people. However, a limitation of most of Ladies lacoste lacooste is that their arguments are not clearly supported by empirical evidence. Therefore, more empirical data is needed to either support or reject the existing literature, and this study may serve as a lacostf in that respect. The majority of the readers, however, defended the Norwegian way of communicating. Their comments might not be very objective as they seem overly negative to American communication practices. The notion of politeness within linguistic Ladies lacoste has many interpretations (Culpeper 2018). Those who defend Ladie practices, take it for granted that Norwegians, in general, do not aim to be impolite. This is further discussed Ladjes section five. The validity and generalizability of the corpus findings are pacoste discussed in section Ladids. Linguistic items that tend to receive a lqcoste interpretation are, for example, greetings, small talk, gossip, jokes and back-channeling cues. However, as will become apparent below, the interpretation and evaluation of phatic talk is far from universal or context-free. Thus, whereas communication resides on its propositional content (convey meaning, share information, have someone do something etc. In laccoste latter case, phatic talk may be spoken with the same intent as fillers (uh, erm, well), as people often resolve to Ladies lacoste when they do not know what else to talk about. Researchers have placed different importance on phatic talk. Thus, whether an utterance is interpreted lacoate phatic or non-phatic is often a matter Ldies negotiation of meaning and correct inference on the part of the hearer. When an utterance is interpreted as phatic, it is normally because the informational purpose is considered rather weak (ibid. Scollon and Scollon (2018: 56) contend that when American strangers are thrown together by circumstances, such as sitting next to each other on a long-distance bus, they would normally switch to involvement strategies by, for instance, talking about the weather or showing each other pictures of their grandchildren. According to Schneider (2018), the latter also constitute phatic talk in an American context because personal topics in small talk are common there, but not in countries like the UK. The opposite notion, independence strategies, may be illustrated with German examples. In the relevance theory, Sperber and Wilson (2018) draw attention to how people tend to interpret messages in accordance with their own expectations. In relation to this, Cruz (2001, 2018), who is occupied with the interpretation of phatic talk in an intercultural setting, mentions at least two reasons why correct interpretation of phatic talk in another language is especially difficult. The first is the general nature of phatic talk as a type of communication where the informational content is rather weak and interpretation, therefore, needs to rely more heavily on contextual cues. The second reason is that these cues are often sociocultural conventions that the community has in common, but which might be unknown to a stranger. The public debate mentioned in the introduction of this article is a good example of how different perceptions of phatic talk can cause turmoil, and shows the necessity of further studies into sociocultural differences in phatic talk. Comparing different CMD channels, Herring (2017) argues that in public CMD, such as the online discussion forums in the present corpus, people tend to care less about face work than in private CMD (e. Flaming means aggressively attacking a specific topic and the sender behind it (Crystal 2018:58). Values serve as standards for what is good or bad, worth doing or avoiding, and so on (Schwartz 2018: 4). The way they become visible to others is usually by being reflected in pragmatic norms (Wierzbicka 1985: 173), and as mentioned by Cruz above, norms are often sociocultural conventions that the community has in common. However, as cited in the introduction with regards to studies on American communication, there is, to the best of my knowledge, no evidence that national culture imply homogeneity in norms. In this study, I do not only look at the content of the responses but also at how their opinions are linguistically manifested. In total, there are 1312 comments from readers to the six texts above. Most of those contributing to the comment sections are Norwegians, but fifty-one define themselves as non-Norwegian. Age is not specified, but one can often make a qualified guess based on language, the content, or the attached photo. The analysis has been conducted in accordance with the traditions of qualitative content analysis (Glaser and Strauss 1967) where analyzing is an inductive process going back and forth between data and conceptualization. The quotes from the corpus used in this article have been translated into English by the author. There is always a danger that nuances are lost in translation. In some cases, when the selected quote does not clarify the agent of the statement, the nationality is placed in brackets, e. As mentioned above, not all the responses could be placed into one of the two categories outlined in 3. However, since the scope in this article is limited to Norwegian perceptions, their views are not represented in the quotes below. When it comes to Norwegian readers, the total number of clearly supportive statements in the comment sections was less (275) than those defending Norwegian norms (367). However, the difference is not substantial enough to state that any of the groups can represent the Norwegian population. Whether supportive or defensive, their statements contain value-laden expressions which are highlighted in bold below. The quotes have been translated into English by the author and are presented in accordance with the procedures given in 3. There is a sense of embarrassment on behalf of fellow Norwegians, and a belief that people could, if they would, pull themselves together and show better manners. The quotes below have been chosen because they represent some of the commonly held views among those who defend the Norwegian communicative norms. Categorizing the expressions highlighted in 4. For the purpose of the discussion that follows, these (shown in bold) and terms with similar meaning are grouped together in table 1. Table 1: Summary of value-laden terms used in 4. However, the Norwegian opinions about Americans provide an interesting view on their own values with regards to phatic talk, and those are further discussed below. Coupland defined phatic talk as something people use when there is minimal commitment to seriousness and factuality, but it still has a positive social value.
