Intercultural communication in the multilingual urban workplace
Published in wiley
Pages: 301 - 322
This chapter explores various issues relating to intercultural communication in the global urban workplace. The urban centers in today’s global world are almost always multilingual and diverse, and the contact between communities and individuals of diverse backgrounds demonstrates many unique linguistic outcomes. It is also essential for all interlocutors to formulate strategies to facilitate such communications. In addition, the study of communicative behavior in a multilingual workplace reveals the attitude of the interlocutors toward the different languages, toward their own linguistic identity and toward that of their addressee. The chapter discusses these theories and frameworks associated with intercultural communication in general and then concentrates on issues specific to multilingual global workplace communications. © 2019 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
