The purpose of this study is to investigate the Korean elementary school children`s request style and the actual state of experiencing conflict in conversation using a questionnaire survey. A sample of 2589 children was obtained from elementary schools in Seoul and Gyeonggi area. For data analysis, frequency, mean, chi-square test, t-test, ANOVA, and Spearman`s correlation analysis were used. The major findings can be summarized as follows: (1) The request style is different according to grade, sex, and family type that the child belongs to. The children who belong to the higher classes, the female group, and the small family have tendency to present both the demand and the ground obviously more than others. And as the grade is higher, the children have tendency to talk in a slightly roundabout way. (2) Those questioned show a tendency to use certain style in request regardless of the companion or the state of conversation. (3) The frequency that the children experience conflict interrelates with the request style that they use. Particularly, the children who use the style presenting only the ground without the contents of demand are most likely to face conflict in conversation.
