English Abstract

As a matter of fact, pragmatics in general and speech acts theory, in particular, have witnessed an ever-lasting revolution in the number of studies, papers and articles that are conducted and written to deal with how their nature and state of affairs have been developing and to depict the extent which they have been reaching.

They have, in a way or another, achieved both qualitative and quantitative leaps in enriching linguistics and linguistic theory with fruitful and fresh researches that draws the forthcoming landmarks of the image of language and its idiosyncrasy.

On this basis, the present study adds and completes, but not beautifies, other pragmatic portraits already demarcated by others.

It is an in-depth treatment of apologizing expressions manipulated in Jojo Moye’s Me Before You and After You.

It adopts a descriptive-analytical approach in which the frequencies and percentages are statistically used in the analysis of the apologizing expressions.

It means that this study employs both descriptive and qualitative methods of analysis.

Based on the statistical side, the study is concerned with displaying the frequencies and percentages of apologizing expressions of both simple and complex strategies.

The statistical instrument adopted here is embodied in the form of graphs (figures) and tabulated data to illustrate the extent to which the apologizing expressions of the two strategies are divergent.

The study concludes different findings as to how apologizing expressions of complex and simple types are concerned.

The complex strategy of expressions is of more considerable variations than those of simple one in a way that for the complex one, the number of apologizing expressions is larger than the number of the other strategy.

In a way or another, it is possible to state that apologizing expressions are very widely manipulated in these two literary works, but they do not carry the same statistical, influential and above all pragmatic weights.
