Politeness in Roasting: When Humour Meets Power
Yusuf   Al Arief

Universitas Lambung Mangkurat


This research examines the use of politeness strategies in stand-up comedy roasts. Specifically, it examines how comedians manage power dynamics and societal standards of politeness while addressing those in authoritative positions in a given society. The author investigated stand-up comedy roasting using Brown and Levinson's politeness theory and prior research on humor and impoliteness. The results indicate that comedians used numerous politeness methods, including the use of compliments or flattery, indirectness or hedges, and off-the-record discourse, to achieve their humorous objectives. This research provides insights into how comedians utilize language and humor to manage challenging social situations by implementing the politeness strategies theory.

Keywords: politeness strategies, stand-up comedy roasting, power dynamics, humour

ChatGPT & language of man and woman and pragmatics context

The language of men and women can differ in various pragmatic contexts. Pragmatics is the study of how language is used in context to convey meaning, and gender can play a role in the way language is used and interpreted.

For example, in the context of a business meeting, men may use more assertive language and speak more often, while women may use more collaborative language and be interrupted more frequently. This can lead to gender imbalances in communication and decision-making.

In another context, such as a social gathering, men and women may use different language styles to convey their social roles and identities. Women may use more expressive language and focus on building social connections, while men may use more assertive language to assert their dominance or status.

ChatGPT & What is Pragmatics?

 Question:  What is pragmatics?

Pragmatics is a subfield of linguistics that studies how people use language in context beyond the literal meaning of words and sentences. It explores how speakers use language to convey meaning, make requests, give commands, express emotions, make suggestions, and negotiate social interactions.

Pragmatics considers the effects of context, background knowledge, and social norms on language use. It examines how speakers use language to achieve their goals and how listeners interpret and respond to language in different social and cultural contexts.
