Patterns of Expatriate-Local Personnel Communication in Multinational Corporations.
Du-Babcock, Bertha; Babcock, Richard D.
Journal of Business Communication, v33 n2 p141-64 Apr 1996
Presents empirically derived models of expatriate-local staff oral communication patterns in Taiwan. Finds that communication dynamics differed in three identified communication zones, expatriates with the cooperation of the local Chinese developed efficient but different communication systems in all three zones, and cultural influences on both expatriates and local Chinese interlocutors varied among these zones.
