Intercultural Communication

Intercultural communication studies the behaviors of people from different cultures and countries, their interactions, and understandings of each other.  Karlfried Knapp defines it as "the interpersonal interaction between members of different groups, which differ from each other in respect of the knowledge shared by their members and in respect of their linguistic forms of symbolic behaviour." Through intercultural communication, people and businesses seek to minimize conflict among different ethnic, national, cultural, and other groups.  (Kwintessential, 2008)
