ABSTRACT

In relation to the thesis, I have conducted surveys with interview, and follow-up interview in Seoul and Tokyo to analyze the differences in sociocultural norms with regard to personal information request in Korea and Japan. To be specific, setting up situations in which a student exchange with a professor questions and answers about his or her personal information, differentiated between mother tongue and contact, in colleges of Korea and Japan, and to figure out the practice and background, I have used sociolinguistic methods to conduct analysis and scrutiny of the following linguistic phenomena. the analysis of the linguistic behaviors related to ‘personal information request’ involving foreign language learners in Korea and Japan shows that those who register a linguistic behavior closest to target language are Japanese learners of Korean(JK), and this group have diverse exchange partners and register high levels of convenience and contact in language use. These traits are thought to have contributed to the learners performing linguistic behaviors closest to target language. Like this, this thesis has surveyed the reality of consciousness of the abstraction called ‘personal information request’ in Korea and Japan through the different sociocultural norms related ‘personal information request’ involving Korea and Japan. And by analyzing the linguistic behaviors that transpire in the supposed situation involving ‘personal information request’, I have analyzed speech strategy for each country through the stereotypes that appear in Korea and Japan.
