Book Information

   

Title: Dialogue and Culture
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=DS%201
Series Title: Dialogue Studies 1
Description:

The volume deals with the relationship between language, dialogue, human
nature and culture by focusing on an approach that considers culture to be
a crucial component of dialogic interaction. Part I refers to the so-called
'language instinct debate' between nativists and empiricists and introduces
a mediating position that regards language and dialogue as determined by
both human nature and culture. This sets the framework for the
contributions of Part II which propose varying theoretical positions on how
to address the ways in which culture influences dialogue. Part III presents
more empirically oriented studies which demonstrate the interaction of
components in the 'mixed game' and focus, in particular, on specific action
games, politeness and selected verbal means of communication.
