Abstract:

How and why is silence used interculturally? Approaching the phenomenon of
silence from multiple perspectives, this book shows how silence is used,
perceived and at times misinterpreted in intercultural communication. Using
a model of key aspects of silence in communication - linguistic, cognitive
and sociopsychological - and fundamental levels of social organization -
individual, situational and sociocultural - the book explores the intricate
relationship between perceptions and performance of silence in interaction
involving Japanese and Australian participants. Through a combination of
macro- and micro- ethnographic analyses of university seminar interactions,
the stereotypes of the 'silent East' is reconsidered, and the tension
between local and sociocultural perspectives of intercultural communication
is addressed. The book has relevance to researchers and students in
intercultural pragmatics, discourse analysis and applied linguistics.

Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis
                            Pragmatics
