Irving Goffman (1955) wrote an important study called
“THE PRESENTATION OF SELF IN EVERYDAY LIFE”
A collection of 6 essays that discussed the image we present of ourselves on a day to day basis.
Terms of address and introductions are often the first way we present ourselves – think about how you would feel if you had introduced yourself or greeted someone inappropriately – how would you feel?
WHERE DOES THIS ALL FIT IN?
What term of address should you use if meeting the following:
A High Court judge in session?
A retired High Court Judge?
The Archbishop of Canterbury?
A Jewish religious leader?
Do you know your forms of address?
ME, Myself and i!
WHO ARE YOU?
Terms of address as an introduction to face work and politeness theory.
Many conversations, whether formal or informal open with some form of introduction by a third party or self identification
Some conversations open with a MARKER about what the topic of conversation is going to be:
“ I’d like you to tell me a bit more about this product…”
What KIND of TALK is this most likely to accompany?
We often employ elision !
MANY GREETINGS REFER TO THE TIME OF DAY
CAN YOU THINK OF ANY?
Consider how you would open the conversation when asking a stranger for directions…
What others can you think of?

Consider the factors that influence the way you open a conversation.
