This research was aimed at investigating appreciation in Ejagham. Both primary and secondary data were used for the study. The research findings revealed that the Manyu people see people who are appreciative as people who are well brought up or of good morals people who can give back. It was also discovered that they have covert and overt forms of acquisition. Again, it was discovered that Ejagham women are more appreciative than men. Due to time constraints, the investigation was not exhaustive as it would have been expected. The work recommends that more wore be done in future to exhaustively investigate thanking. Other aspects of politeness in the language, especially regrets and greetings still needs sociolinguistics attention
