The study aims at investigating the types of impoliteness used in English and Arabic parliamentary questioning. The first thing that has to be done in order for this study to accomplish its objectives is to compile a list of authentic English and Arabic parliamentary questioning sessions. It has been decided that questioning in the United States Congress will serve as a suitable counterpart for questioning in the Iraqi parliament. As a result, the American parliamentary questioning to Secretary of State Clinton in the congress in 2017 is selected to represent the English data, whereas the Iraqi parliamentary questioning to Minister of Health in 2017 is selected to After that, an analysis of the selected data is performed using Culpeper's (2011) model as a starting point. The results show that English and Arabic parliamentary questions often use impoliteness. Both languages treat impoliteness differently. English, unlike Arabic, prefers conventional triggers over implicational ones. Although both languages use conventional impoliteness triggers, they use implicational impoliteness triggers differently.
