Kurzbeschreibung

This study sheds light on the problem of communicative inequality, neglected both by linguists and communication scholars, among speakers of different languages. It provides a four-step Critical Theory analysis of language-based inequality and distortion between speakers of a few dominant languages, especially English, and speakers of minority languages in the context of international and intercultural communication. Based on a theoretical framework of "e;Distorted Communication"e; developed by J. Habermas and C. Muller, the analysis focuses on a critical description, definition, and interpretation of "e;Distorted Intercultural Communication"e;, and exposes the ideology that legitimates linguistic inequality and distortion in communication.
