This study suggests the revision of maxims of conversation by analyzing the questionnaire about the university students’ unpleasant conversation. The violation of maxims of conversation is widespread all around the university campus and even in class there have been lots of embarrassing communication between students and professors. As a result of questionnaire investigation, this study needs to revise the maxims of conversation to explain the various cases that we can not analyze with the present maxims of conversation. To do that, this study suggested an interactional language function that emphasizes social relationships and focuses on the person rather than on the information. Moreover, my final suggestion is that professors should explain maxims of conversation on the first day of class and prevent the unpleasant conversational situations in advance that may occur afterward in a class.
