abstract

Attenuation is a pragmatic tool used by speakers to minimise the interactional effects in communicative acts. This exploratory study examines some Valle de Aburrá (Colombia) written press and literature examples in which speakers use idioms instead of other language tools in order to be polite and not to damage their interlocutor’s face.
