Culture: Definition

There exist countless definitions of the word “culture” and different studies (e.g. linguistics, biology, etc.) use the word in different meanings.

On this blog, the word “culture” is used in the ethnolinguistic sense to denote particular features of people’s everyday life, their study, work, business and other habits or customs used to achieve certain communicative goals.

Similar to nonverbal means of communication, culture is an important aspect in language learning as it affect the way people communicate.
