The Japanese language employs an extensive system of politeness and honorific markers. In order to utter any kind of expression, the speaker must keep in mind the social standing of the person addressed, the person being talked about and his/her own personal status.

These markers appear on verbs, adjectives, and even nouns. For example, the informal form of the verb "to go," iku, is used when speaking with someone close to the speaker, but if the person addressed is a stranger or is older than the speaker, the politeness marker -masu appears: iki- masu. If the person being talked about is socially superior to the speaker, the honorific form of the verb "to go," irassyaru, may be employed, even if this person is not present.
