Argues that cross-cultural communication between Chinese and Americans is sometimes blocked by culture-governed structures of language. Discusses certain culture- and language-related phenomena that can occur in interaction. Demonstrates that some communicative obstacles are immediate consequences of differences in styles of expression, structures of information and other cultural conventions that people of two countries are traditionally accustomed to.
