Abstract

When compliments are interpreted as sincere and spontaneous, the community can recognise them positively. Furthermore, when two people have a conversation with each other, they may or may not be involved in a power difference (-P) and distance (-D) between them. This study investigates compliment responses between Australian students as Native Speakers (NS) and Indonesian students as Non-Native Speakers (NNS). The study focuses the Compliment Responses (CRs) on specific cultural groups and cross-cultural comparisons between Indonesian and Australian cultures, based on gender and response strategies. Firstly, Indonesian male students will perceive compliments to be more flirtatious than innocent. Secondly, Australian male students will perceive compliments to be more objectively practical than emotional. Finally, in response to compliments, Australian students will use acceptance token agreements and deflections with more frequency than Indonesian students do. The study was designed in a qualitative method, which focused on a single group of two students. The study also used a purposive sampling focusing on reduced variations, simplified analyses, and facilitated group interviewing. In response to compliments, Indonesian male students tend to accept tokens less than Australians do. The Indonesians tend to seek agreement in the extent degree of equality and solidarity, which is similar to what the Australians do.
