ABSTRACT

This article examines the use of double honorifics based on the data of the Diet Record. The results of the survey can be summarized as follows. 1) The most frequently used form of double honorifics in the data of the National Diet is OSSYA-RARERU, and it is predominant compared to other types. The double honorifics of “respect specific type + respect general type” are only identified with very limited cases of use. 2) The pattern of change varies depending on the respective verb in the temporal trend. Although the use of double honorifics has often increased since the 1990s, it seems to have recently turned toward a decline. However, there is also a form that clearly shows a tendency for use to continue to increase, such as ONAKUNARININA-RARERU. 3) In the sample survey of the Budget Committee, the use of OSSYA-RARERU seems to have continuously increased, but dividing the survey period by smaller intervals shows that it keeps increasing and decreasing actively. It was also found that the presence of a specific speaker who actively uses the double honorific form affects the results.
