About the topic

Anthropologists and linguists have note that, when it comes to understanding language, not only does it appear that nonverbal (body) language is essential in bringing accurate meanings to social and interactional settings, but failing to appreciate that men and women are socialized to use language in very different ways can lead to enormous misunderstandings. Moreover, in attempting to respect rank, by avoiding “direct” speech, we can, at times, endanger our lives.
