Impoliteness bibliography

I have compiled a downloadable bibliography of impoliteness-related items. It currently consists of 500 items from diverse fields, including:

  • Philological research
  • Linguistic pragmatics
  • Communication research
  • Interpersonal relations research
  • Aggression research
  • Anthropology

The bibliography can easily be searched for key items such as "insults", "threats", "teasing", etc.
