Using a variety of research methods, the author describes and analyzes differences between honorifics and politeness usage of native speakers and advanced learners of Korean as a second language.

It discusses the two main areas of the honorifics system; speech styles or hearer honorifics and referent honorifics. The chapter then expands the analysis to acoustic and non‐verbal correlates of (non‐) honorific speech and a discussion of the place of Korean honorifics within a wider model of politeness.
