ABSTRACT

This research analyzes request expressions in Japanese language in correlation with situational factor. Situational factor may be related to age, position and closeness level factors. The request expressions analyzed are conversations in the context of services, about how a request expression is said by a speaker (the one to give service) to hearer (the one to receive service). The objective of a request expression is to persuade the hearer to do what the speaker instructs. If the request language used does not comfort the hearer, it is likely that the objective of a request expression is not communicated.
