This volume is dedicated to questions arising in linguistic, sociological 
and anthropological analyses of intercultural encounters. It aims at 
presenting new theoretical and methodological aspects of Intercultural
Communication, focusing on issues such as ideology and hegemonial 
attitudes, communicative genres and culture specific repertoires of genres, 
the theory of contextualization and nonverbal (prosodic, gestural, mimic) 
contextualization cues. The collected articles, which share an interactive 
view of language, focus on the methodological possibilities of explanatory 
analyses of intercultural communication. They address the question how 
participants in inter-cultural communication (re)construct cultural 
differences and cultural identities.
Empirical analyses go hand-in-hand with the discussion of methodological 
and theoretical aspects of interculturality and the relationship of 
language and culture.
