The research in Politeness has received special momentum since the last few decades.
Additionally, theorists and pragmaticians have approached it from different perspectives
like the social-norm, conversation-maxim, conversation-contact, face-management,
discursive (relational work), and others. In this paper, three approaches of politeness are
revisited highlighting their characteristics and their drawbacks. These models are chosen
to investigate due to their pioneering roles in the domain; they are namely Lakoff’s
(1973), Leech’s (1983), and Brown & Levinson’s (1987). The significance of this paper
lies in its focus on the pioneering politeness theories- which are solidly grounded in
Grice’s Maxims- ,and their approaching fashions in researching politeness. It is worth
mentioning that this study is extracted from the literature review of a PhD dissertation
investigating the Kurdish EFL learners’ interlanguage pragmatics.
