Language, Communication, and Culture Current Directions

by Stella Ting-Toomey

Part of the International and Intercultural Communication Annual Series

Language, Communication, and Culture Current Directions Synopsis

Sponsored by the International and Intercultural Communication Division of the Speech Communication Association, the goal of the International and Intercultural Communication Annual is to promote better understanding of the international and intercultural communication processes. The current volume considers the relationships between language, communication and culture. Sections deal with the critical issues related to language acquisition, context and cognition; present an array of perspectives in analyzing the role of language in comparative cross-cultural and communication settings; and examine the role of first and second language uSAGE in intergroup communication contexts. Working in the disciplines of psychology, linguistics, sociolinguistics, intergroup relations and communication, contributors present new conceptual schemes in the study of language, communication and culture, and apply theoretical frameworks using such methods as ethnography of speaking analysis, rhetorical analysis, conversational analysis and case study analysis. Finally, specific directions for future research are discussed.
