This book challenges two tacit presumptions in the field of intercultural
communication research. Firstly, misunderstandings can frequently be found
in intercultural communication, although, one could not claim that
intercultural communication is constituted by misunderstandings alone. This
volume shows how new perspectives on linguistic analyses of intercultural
communication go beyond the analysis of misunderstanding. Secondly,
intercultural communication is not solely constituted by the fact that
individuals from different cultural groups interact. Each contribution of
this volume analyses to what extent instances of discourse are
institutionally and/or interculturally determined. These linguistic
reflections involve different theoretical frameworks, e.g. functional
grammar, systemic functional linguistics, functional pragmatics, rhetorical
conversation analysis, ethno-methodological conversation analysis,
linguistic an­thro­­pology and a critical discourse approach.

As the contributions focus on the discourse of genetic counseling,
gate-keeping discourse, international team co-operation, international
business communication, workplace discourse, internet communication, and
lamentation discourse, the book exemplifies that the analysis of
intercultural communication is organized in response to social needs and,
therefore, may contribute to the social justification of linguistics.
