Cultural Awareness and the Negotiation of Meaning in Intercultural Communication.
Littlewood, William
Language Awareness, v10 n2-3 p189-99 2001
Focuses on a number of episodes in intercultural communication in which there is some degree of mismatch between the intentions and interpretations of the interlocutors. Three concepts are used to illustrate the nature of these mismatches: the concept of common ground, the principle of indexicaity, and the concept of cultural models. (Author/VWL)
