Query:   Dear colleagues on the list!

I am working on intercultural communication, especially on pragmatic
issues in non-native/ non-native speaker discourse. When I started to
research my new project (on cultural and gender-specific
characteristics that influence one's ability to communicate in
intercultural situations), I came across a lot of stuff, that was of
no use to me, but found only very few articles which really related to
linguistic problems.

Probably a lot of you are working on some project, thesis, paper
etc. that is somehow related to intercultural communication, such as
native-/ non-native speaker discourse, lingua franca communication and
so on. I thought it may be of great use to all of us, if we knew who
is doing what and who is willing to share her/his knowledge with
others. Maybe we could even come up with some joint projects.

So, if you are working or have been working on anything that is
somehow related to linguistic aspects of intercultural communication,
please let me know your name, e-mail address, and the topics about
which you would like to provide and exchange information.

Please send me an e-mail to and I will gather
everything and distribute it via the list.

Hope to hear from you soon
