Abstract: 本研究旨在探討兒童讚美語回應的發展情形,同時也探討讚美者性別與社會地位和讚美主題對判斷以及回應讚美語的影響狀況。本研究方法包含看圖判斷讚美語實驗與看圖回應讚美語實驗。受試者由幼稚園中班、大班、小一、小二、小三以及大學生共一百四十四位學生所組成,依年齡分為六組,每組二十四人,男生女生人數各半。
The present study investigated the development of compliment responses by Mandarin-speaking children who were given a comprehension task and a production task. A total of 144 students participated in this study, including five-year-olds, six-year-olds, seven-year-olds, eight-year-olds, nine-year-olds, and undergraduates, with 24 subjects (12 males and 12 females) in each age group. The results showed that there were no significant differences in the subjects’ perception of compliments concerning gender, status, or specific topics. However, the effect of the complimenter’s gender and status can be seen in the production data, and it was found that the subjects gave more responses to compliments dealing with concrete concepts. Moreover, it was found that the responses from children as young as five years old already showed the influence of the gender and status of the complimenter as well as of the topic of the compliment. However, the subjects’ changing use of compliment response strategies was found to be directly related to their ongoing development. Before the age of eight, our children mainly used the strategy of Direct Acceptance, while after eight they started to use the strategy of Indirect Acceptance more frequently to avoid praising themselves.
