Abstract

From the standpoint of Weigand’s concept of ‘competence-in-performance’, I will analyse the communicative function of <i>sangdae-nopim </i>in conversations at Korean workplaces. The aim of this investigation is to show that in the modern Korean society speakers draw on <i>sangdae-nopim </i>in a more and more strategical fashion. Rather than reducing its function to the traditional value of ‘showing respect to one’s dialogue partner’, I will demonstrate how <i>sangdae-nopim </i>is used to mediate between both respect and selfinterest.
