"Why Japanesr Are More Likely to Favor "Apology," While Americans Are More Likely to Favor "Thank You"" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, TBA, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, May 21, 2008 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-05-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p232588_index.html>

Abstract: This study investigated which speech act is more preferred in favor asking between apologies and thanks in the US and Japan and further attempted to explore how positive and negative face concerns (Brown & Levinson, 1987) relate to preferences for apologies or thanks. For these goals, two survey studies were conducted. In study 1, 152 participants were asked to compose an email message for a situation where a favor was asked. In study 2, 634 participants were asked to fill out one of four versions of a questionnaire, which included a prototype of an email message for the situation described in study 1 and negative and positive face threats measurements. The findings showed that 1) a greater number of Japanese included apologies in their favor asking messages while a greater number of American messages contained, 2) Americans had stronger intentions to use thanks in their favor asking messages than did Japanese, whereas Japanese had stronger intentions to use an apology than Americans did, and 3) including an apology and/or thanks reduced the amount of some types of face threat perceived in favor asking message. Finally, implications and future research directions were discussed.

"Processing Political Messages From Favored Candidates: The Effect of Candidate Favorability on Attitudes Toward Issues" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Suntec Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre, Suntec City, Singapore, Jun 22, 2010 Online <PDF>. 2019-05-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p404621_index.html>

Abstract: An experiment was conducted to test the effect of candidate favorability on message processing and attitudes toward issue. Participants (N = 182) received messages about unfamiliar political issues from either favored or less favored candidates in 2008 U.S. Presidential election. Messages advocated either a typical Democratic position or a typical Republican position. A positive effect of candidate favorability on attitudes toward issues was found in both high and low levels of political interest. For high political interest, candidate favorability had a positive effect on both issue-relevant thoughts and source-relevant thoughts. Issue-relevant thoughts had a positive effect on attitudes for high political interest in one issue. Implications of findings on heuristics and systematic processing were discussed.
