Qs: Culture-Bound Communication in the Classroom

Editor for this issue: Pamela Dixon <pamelalinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Could anyone advise me on the references about the use of locally specific
examples in the classroom, please? I am trying to find relevant materials
about the use of mutually understood culture-bound examples/ items in
communication. For example, a British teacher may make reference to
football in the classroom when most of the students are British.

My search hasn't been entirely fruitful. I found something about the
culture within a classroom, but that's not what I am looking for.

Thank you very much.

Best regards,
