Summary

In today's globalized world of international contact and multicultural interaction, effective intercultural communication is increasingly a prerequisite for social harmony and organizational success. This handbook illustrates how the practical, problem-solving approach of applied linguistics can illuminate a range of issues that arise in real-life intercultural interaction. The editor has brought together experts from a range of social science disciplines, including psychology, applied linguistics, and anthropology, to describe, analyze, and where possible, propose solutions to language-related problems. This book presents theoretical and applied examinations of topics that have contemporary relevance in intercultural settings, including power, dominance, discrimination, social boundaries, taboos, conflict, and identity. Applied chapters cover .intercultural communication in school, work, and healthcare settings; as well as in intimate relationships, and in training environments
