Positive Politeness is mostly used when there is a close relationship between the speaker and the hearer. Negative politeness is mostly used when there is a distance between the speaker and the hearer so that the speaker tries to minimize the size of imposition. However, Off-record is used when there is a distance between the speaker and the hearer. Keywords: pragmatics, politeness strategy, command.
