Abstract
Politeness is such an important phenomenon that it is indispensable to human interaction. As a universal phenomenon, politeness can be observed in all languages and cultures. In this essay, the author will give you the detailed analysis of the politeness principle between East and West. From the analysis, we will better understand that the polite behavior (including values and norms attached to such behavior) is culture-specific and language-specific.
