GRAMMAR OF POLITENESS

Politeness is an expression which we use for showing good manners toward other people, as in behaviour, speech, etc.

Expressing gratitude

A polite way of expressing gratitude is very important for everyday common speech. Gratitude can be expressed, and usually is expressed in 2 ways: by saying "thank you", and by saying "you are welcome"

Thank you

You are welcome

Asking permission

A polite way of asking permission can be performed by using 4 key phrases: can, could, may, do you mind. Using one of these phrases depends on how bad do we want something, and how high is our level of politeness.
