This paper offers with an research of 1 episode of the yank comedy sequence buddies and the query even if the developed dialog used there may be considered as well mannered or no longer. for the reason that this sequence is particularly comedian, i'll examine how politeness and comedy could be combined.
Concerning the idea of politeness, i'll mostly follow the theories of Brown and Levinson and Goffman, supply short summaries in their theories and talk about even if the characters in acquaintances violate the principles pointed out there that allows you to achieve laughter from the audience.
I have selected one unmarried episode and may glance deeply at numerous smaller components of it which will solution the query if humour can be utilized with well mannered behaviour or in the event that they can not coexist.
