PERCEIVING THE OTHER THROUGH INTERACTION: THE CASE OF ADDRESS FORMS IN THE NOVEL MADAME BY ANTONI LIBERA
In this article, we analyse the interactions in the novel Madame, specifically the way a teacher and her students use address forms. The basis of the analysis is the chapter ”Per aspera ad astra“ whose plot focuses on a French lesson.
First, we define the object of our research (address forms), secondly the context in which it is used (interaction). We also shortly analyse the interactions which can be observed in the chosen fragment of the novel and which are analysed in terms of intercultural aspect. We put the stress on the role address forms play as elements enabling people to negotiate interpersonal relationships.
