Abstract

Key words: complimenting strategies, complimenting behaviour, macro and micro level CRs ABSTRACT Since complimenting strategies are associated with social as well as cognitive factors, the aim of this paper is to analyze gender-based differences in compliment response strategies based on English undergraduate students' responses obtained from a questionnaire. The paper tries to examine the formulaic patterns of complimenting of both genders, as well as to determine possible linguistic choices reflecting different socio-cultural norms. Furthermore, the focus is to identify a range of macro and micro level compliment responses given by the undergraduate students of English determining the way female and male respondents exchange and interpret compliments.
