Abstract


This paper investigates the apology strategies used by Egyp non standard Arabic. Analysis of the apology strategies were based on strategies developed by a number of researchers (Blum-Kulka & Olshtain). The data were collected through the use of questionnaire in the form of Discourse Completion Test which was distributed to 10 native speakers. Frequencies and percentages are considered. The findings of the study reveal that the main apology strategy used by the native speakers is “expression of apology”. This strategy consists of three sub-strategies: Expression of regret, offer of apology and request for forgiveness. The next frequent apology strategy used is “Acknowledgement of responsibility” which includes five sub-categories: explicit acknowledgement, expression of lack of intent, expression of self-deficiency, expression of embarrassment and explicit acceptance of the blame. Other strategies such as expression of concern for the hearer, offer of repair, explanation of account and others were also used, but in low frequencies.

Key words: Speech acts; Apology strategies; Arab, language politeness.
