This article studies mitigation strategies in medical advice-giving during primary care consultations. The purpose is to relate the use of mitigation with the social effect on the speakers’ face in accordance to the roles that are played in the specific interaction. Mitigation strategies are analyzed from pragmalinguistic and sociopragmatic perspectives in two extracts of medical consultations. The results show that, when there is a risk of threat to the interactants’ face, the use of mitigation strategies achieves the social effect of mitigating threats to face. On the other hand, when no threats to face are perceived in the interaction, mitigation strategies contribute to enhance the speakers’ face.
