I would like to seek opinions/more information regarding chronemics and
it's relation to linguistics.

There are many journals, text books, and papers out there (for example
Neulip:2009, and Rogers and Steinfatt:1999) that depict chronemics and the
studies of monochronic and polychronic cultural behaviors as nonverbal
communication with in the area of intercultural communication.

It is my understanding that chronemics 'is not' a part of nonverbal
communication from a linguistics point of view. But I would like to read
other linguists opinions on this subject. While the likes of Neulip and
Rogers (et al.) are intercultural communication specialists, they are not
linguists and therefore disputed within the discipline.

Therefore, I would welcome other resources addressing linguistics and
