Abstract

All of us who have travelled abroad can tell numerous anecdotes about our experiences with foreign cultures: from everyday situations, like that the doors on the campus don’t need to be pulled to close, as they close by themselves, to delicate misunderstandings resulting from the use of specific linguistic means in specific situations. The study presented in this book is a result of my interest for how we use language in actual communication and how our culture shapes our speech. In a narrow sense, this book is about intercultural communication between members of the Macedonian and American culture. It describes the linguistic features of disagreement in oral communication in Macedonian and English and highlights some problems that Macedonian speakers may face when communicating with Americans. The study focuses on disagreement because disagreement often inflames conflict and creates barriers to successful communication. In a broader sense, the book is about communication among members of different cultures. By shedding light on a particular speech act and its realization in two particular cultures, it highlights the general reasons which lead to different perception of the behavior of members of different cultures. The way members of different cultures frame their speech acts is influenced by their values and beliefs. All cultures have their own values and beliefs which may be perplexing for members of other cultures. Therefore, in this modern and dynamic life of intensive communication with members of different cultures, all individuals involved in this communication must be at least aware of these differences and have some knowledge of the values and beliefs of the culture that their interlocutors belong to.
