Abstract:

Expressing thanks has been widely recognized as one of the most important social acts because it facilitates warm feelings and solidarity among interlocutors (Cohen, 1996; Eisenstein and Bodman, 1986, 1993; Intachakra, 2004; Leech, 1983). However, a review of literature reveals that despite its importance and the high frequency of its use in daily social interactions, the speech act of expressing gratitude has attracted little research attention compared to other speech acts and most researches focused only on the main strategies without furthering into sub-strategies of the semantic content of the strategies.
