Respect and Address in a Turkish Village: A Quantitative Sociolinguistic Account

Abstract

Sociolinguistic studies have established that social relations are clearly expressed in language use. This paper examines social relations and their expression in kin term address usage in a Turkish village and suggests a refinement of this sociolinguistic finding. Quantitative analyses of respect rank and address usage among married male villagers suggest a general principle of language use: that unmarked social relations are expressed consistently in language use, but that marked relations are constrained and only weakly evident in usage.
