This study aims to investigate the pragmatics of politeness with reference to the core request
strategies used by the Jordanian students in an academic setting. The respondents comprised 45
males and 5 females who are studying English language in the national university of Malaysia.
The data was collected using a Discourse Completion Test, which the questionnaire consisted of
14 situations. These were combined with a rating scale to weigh the imposition for each
situation. The data was analysed based on CCSARP (Cross-Cultural Speech Act Realisation
Project) and the theory of politeness (Brown and Levinson, 1987). The results indicated that
Jordanian students used a variety of strategies ranging from the most direct to indirect as the
following, inquiry strategy, mind strategy, permission strategy, appreciation strategy and
preparatory strategy. The preparatory strategy accounted for 335/700 or 47.86% of the total core
request strategies used by Jordanian students. This strategy consider as a polite strategy and
indirect. This guides us to say that the Jordanian preferred to be polite and indirect. The indirect
strategy could also be attributed to their culture and religious values, whereas the use of direct
strategies (the imperative) could be attributed to the closeness and the solidarity between the
Jordanian students. This research could be extended to investigate the politeness phenomenon in
Jordanian family and social contexts in relation to Islamic values.

Most apology studies in the Jordanian context have investigated apologies based on a corpus of elicited data. Rarely have apologies been observed in the natural data; nor have the contextual factors that obligated these apologies been considered. This study is based on a corpus of 1100 naturally occurring apology events, collected through an ethnographic observation. Semi-structured interview was also used to examine the influence of contextual factors (social status, social distance, and severity of offence) on the choice of apology strategies. The respondents for this study were selected via convenient sampling. The naturally occurring apologies were coded using a modified version of the apology strategy typology outlined by Olshtain and Cohen (1983). There are series of findings that are worth noting; the first is that, acknowledging responsibility was the most common apology strategy in Jordanian Arabic. Second, acknowledging responsibility and swearing by God’s name, formed the most frequent combination of apology strategies in this language. Third, another strategy that was high on the percentage of occurrence and deserving discussion was the nonapology strategies. Fourth, the selections of apology strategies were influenced by social status more than the degree of the severity of the offence or the social distance. Last but not least, new culture-specific apology strategies were detected in the corpus and elaborated in the paper. The findings of the study will assist material developers in preparing for resource books or modules for teaching and training of language and cultural awareness. The findings can also be used to raise the awareness about the sociocultural rules that govern the use of language functions.
