Saying the Right Thing--Modern Languages and Australian Diplomacy.
Evans, Gareth
Babel: Australia, v28 n3 p4-8 Nov 1993
Defines diplomacy as the art of language, of avoiding misunderstanding on a global scale. Emphasizes that Australia's cultural vitality is the product of English and other indigenous languages of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander citizens, as well as European and Asian languages, and that the country's economic vitality depends on knowing foreign languages to maintain a competitive edge.
