Summary/Abstract: The article discusses social and personal factors which determine the choice of honorific forms in Japanese university clubs. Analysis is based on questionnaire data. The results imply a certain hierarchy of social and personal factors, as well as the existence of group specific and activity-specific patterns. The most important factor which determines honorific choice is addressee’s in-group history, followed by psychological closeness of both communicators, and addressee’s sex (with only a minimum influence). Culture-activity groups show a more complicated factor-output pattern as compared to athletic groups.
