Specially, it studies the choice of strategies and directive acts, identifies the similarities and differences between American speakers and Vietnamese speakers. Two questionnaires used to collect data for the study were conducted on 30 American subjects and 30 Vietnamese subjects. The first questionnaire, Metapragmatic Questionnaire was intended to tap the subjects’ assessment of the social variables namely the relative Power (P) between the speaker and the hearer, the social Distance between the speaker and the hearer, and the rating (R) of the severity of face-threatening of the speaker’s complaint. The second questionnaire, Discourse Completion Task which was logically validated was used to elicit complaints from the subjects. The results show that these two groups of American and Vietnamese speakers differed in their choice of linguistic politeness strategies in relation to variation of the social dimensions in the contexts studied.
