Abstract: Japanese people often use “insubordination” in daily life conversations. “Insubordination” is a phenomenon where an utterance ends without formal endings. Japanese learners may think that it is not correct, but the native speakers do not think it is unnatural. The speaker uses “insubordination” to ease the tone of the speech and give the listener a space to understand and judge. So, how is “insubordination” used in Japanese daily life conversations, especially when refusing request and threating someone's Face? In this article, I first listed the definitions given in the existing studies for “insubordination” and then examined them. Finally, In the experiment, I collected roleplaying conversation data from nine Nagasaki University students, and observed the use of “insubordination” with special focus on refusal situations. The data is, then, compared with the study on request situations by Zhang (2013). The results show that they all use “insubordination” when they refuse someone, especially when explaining the reasons for the refusal. But there are also respondents who use the complete sentence to express the refusal. Compared with Zhang's request occasion, it is different.
