As summarized in the preface of the book, Dr. Yoon’s research, the first of its kind in Korean linguistics, makes several important descriptive and theoretical contributions to general socio-pragmatic studies. For instance, Dr. Yoon discovered that Korean hedges, functioning as interactive strategies, are used more frequently in two-party than many-party conversations and more frequently in personal than impersonal topics. Her study also reveals that hedges are used as both positive and negative politeness strategies and that social situational factors are more influential in affecting hedge use than social structural factors such as gender, age, region, or occupation.
