    Default comparative and contrastive

    Dear teachers,

    Could please tell me difference between the following two titles?

    1. A Comparative Study of Politeness Forms in Birtish English and American English
    2. A Contrastive Study of Politeness Forms in Birtish English and American English

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang

    Couldn't a comparison show similarities, while a contrastive one would focus on differences?
