It draws on the discipline of sociolinguistics and on intercultural communication studies, and explains associated research approaches. Main concerns are: language and language behaviour as a reflection of cultures and subcultures; language as bridge or barrier in the global environment; and issues in multilingual societies and linguistic imperialism.
