Abstract:

Intercultural discourse and communication is emerging as an important area
of research in a highly globalized and connected world, where language and
culture contact is frequent and cultural misunderstandings and
misconceptions abound. The handbook contains contributions from established
scholars and up-and-coming researchers from a range of fields to survey the
theoretical perspectives and applied work in this burgeoning area of
linguistics. This timely volume features first a section which introduces
the background detailing the scope and topics of the field; followed by a
section of four different theoretical approaches and their basic research
questions, from Dell Hymes's foundational Ethnography of Speaking  and John
Gumperz's Interactional Sociolinguistics to Critical approaches and
Postmodernism. The third section, Interactional Discourse Features,
describes and explains the features of talk which are frequently studied in
cross-cultural research, such as turn-taking and politeness. The volume
also includes a section on Interactional Discourse sites, examining
cross-cultural communication (such as Greek-Turkish discourse). The
handbook concludes with chapters on where such discourse occurs, such as
Law, Medicine, and Religion.
