Series Title: Beihefte zur Zeitschrift für romanische Philologie 358
Description:

Linguistic history and cultural history are closely related. This is
demonstrated in the study on the phenomenon of linguistic politeness in
French requests, e.g. requesting, ordering, suggesting and advising. On a
purely linguistic basis, there are indications of a development away from
the concept of medieval politeness, which was primarily based on building
up close relationships to a concept which among other things takes the
personal freedom of the interlocutor into consideration. This change can be
explained with general intellectual developments.
