URL: http://www.peterlang.com/Index.cfm?vLang=E&vSiteID=4&vSiteName=BookDetail%2Ecfm&VID=11688
Series Title: Linguistic Insights. Studies in Language and Communication. Vol. 83
Description:

This volume derives from the COMINTER-SIMULNEG research project which aims
at designing a pragmatic model for the analysis of intercultural
communication between Spaniards and Britons, as well as developing a
teaching methodology for cultural awareness based on computer simulation of
real business settings. Contributions to this volume focus on three main
issues: (a) explaining intercultural communication; (b) research on
intercultural business communication; (c) the use of simulation and gaming
methodology for the acquisition of communicative and cross-cultural
competence in business settings. This book adopts an interdisciplinary
approach to the study and practice of intercultural business communication,
borrowing concepts from social anthropology, social cognition, cognitive
linguistics, and intercultural pragmatics.
