Abstract : Adopting a pragmatic approach, this study investigated the effect of power difference and social distance as indexes of task difficulty on accuracy, fluency, and complexity of request and refusal speech acts. The population of the study were a group of one hundred and ten senior and M.A students studying Translation, English Language Teaching, and Linguistics at Islamic Azad University of Khorasgan. Then, Oxford Placement Test (OPT) was administered to estimate the students' English proficiency levels. Based on Oxford Placement Test (OPT), sixty upper-intermediate students were selected as the participants of this study. Then, they were asked to complete a modified version of Discourse Completion Test (DCT) containing twenty different request and refusal tasks. The tasks had two situations based on two social variables namely, participants' power difference (P) and the social distance between them (D). In some tasks, the power relationship was equal and the distance was small (PD-low). In other tasks, one of the participants had a greater power and the distance between them was large (PD-high). Then, relevant statistical analyses were utilized to analyze the participants' production in terms of accuracy, fluency, and complexity. The results indicate that in PD-high situations, learners' production was more accurate and complex than their production in PD-low situations while learners' production in PD-low situations was more fluent. In fact, L2 students produced PD-low speech acts quite easily and quickly..
