The
present
research
focuses
on
the
implicit
compliments
among
the
native
speakers
of
American
English.
The
pioneering
research
by
Manes
and
Wolfson
(1981)
revealed
that
verbal
compliments
in
middle-­‐class
American
society
are
“formulaic”,
meaning
that
a
small
variety
of
constructions
accounts
for
the
majority
of
the
data.
Since
then,
existing
research
has
focused
almost
exclusively
on
the
explicit
compliments
and
appears
to
have
adopted
a
restricted
view
of
the
gender
differences
in
verbal
complimenting
behaviour.
This
work
argues
that
a
more
balanced
picture
of
complimenting
is
required,
and
to
this
end,
presents
discourse
and
conversation
analysis
of
40
samples
of
implicit
compliments,
produced
by
male
and
female
TV
presenters
of
4
American
talk-­‐shows.
By
taking
a
stance
of
the
“difference”
approach
to
gender
discourse
(e.g.
Tannen,
1991),
it
attempts
at
discovering
gender-­‐based
differences
between
their
topics,
linguistic
realisation
and
functions.
Overall
showing
a
significant
distinction
between
the
use
of
implicit
compliments
by
men
and
women
in
terms
of
their
form
and
function,
and
an
asymmetry
in
their
topics,
the
research
makes
a
contribution
to
the
existing
work
on
discourse
and
gender.
On
the
one
hand,
it
adds
new
perspectives
and
findings
about
the
difference
in
the
ways
men
and
women
construct
conversations
and
build
social
relations
through
complimenting.
On
the
other
hand,
it
shows
how
a
shift
from
explicitness
to
implicitness
in
evaluative
language
allows
the
speakers
to
deal
with
topics
not
commonly
associated
with
gender
expectations.
