ABSTRACT
Access to the world view and the communication style of other cultures may not only enlarge our own way of experiencing the world but enable us to maintain constructive relationship with societies that operate according to a different logic than our own. The article focuses the role of culture in communication. The extent to which cultural pressures affect communication between people from different cultural groups is a function of the dissimilarity between the cultures. Cultural Influence is a socialization process that exists primarily to create and preserve common symbols by which members may assign and exchange meanings.
