Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to examine ritualized verbal behavior observed in everyday encounters between individuals in contemporary Japanese and American society. The paper addresses itself to these questions : (1) what cultural attitudes and norms are held by each linguistic community in respect to rituals of greeting; (2) how does a participant select from among a repertoire the formula which is most appropriately suited to the situation at hand; (3) and what factors influence this selection process. The analysis of the American use of greeting formulas was based on data collected from 48 TV dramas and movies shown on American television between October 1979 and March 1980. These data were supplemented by a few scripts of contemporary American plays. The data collected for the Japanese analysis came from similar sources.
