Intercultural and Intracultural Communication: A Study of Relationship Cues in An Interpersonal Setting.
Waxwood, Vincenne Alicia
This study investigated the communication of acceptance and rejection in intracultural and intercultural triads in an interpersonal setting. Specifically, the attempt was made to determine how members of five different cultures defined and interpreted the verbal and nonverbal behaviors which for them constituted acceptance or rejection. Fifteen subjects participated in two 15-minute group discussions, one in which a subject interacted with two members of her own culture and one in which she interacted with two members of other cultures. Each subject was then questioned individually in a videotape-assisted interview. During the interviews, subjects defined and interpreted what they perceived as cues of acceptance or rejection. A total of 21 cues were defined, six of which were interpreted by over half of the subjects as indicating acceptance. Two other cues were interpreted by over half of the group as indicating rejection, while the remaining 13 were not interpreted consistently. For the most part, cues were defined and interpreted similarly in both the intracultural and the intercultural situations. (Author/KS)
