Martin Warren is a Professor in the Research Centre for Professional Communication in English, English Department, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. He teaches and conducts research in the areas of discourse analysis, discourse intonation, intercultural communication and pragmatics.
In language study, there is an interesting field known as ‘pragmatic politeness’ which is concerned with how speakers and writers use specific combinations of strategies in order to both achieve their communicative goals and to ensure that the face of both the speaker/writer and the reader/hearer are maintained. These strategies are vital for effective communication and the full range available and in which contexts they are preferred are covered in this workshop. This workshop will examine how to best utilize all of these resources in professional contexts.
