    While behaviour, and rules of behaviour are two of the major aspects of
    "culture", Communication is its hallmark.

    One of the most important and critical activities we engage in, is
    communication: a lot of it being words, but there are other simultaneous
    more "basic" verbally communicative things going on.  These "things" are
    body language and facial expressions: they "work" interdependently, either
    augmenting the intended. "message" or contradicting it. In some cases, it may
    sabotage the message completely because one or the other (or both) of the
    non-verbal "channels" are  not in sync with the words.

    Another crucial thing that is part of it (or should be) for clear communication,
    is intentionality: what actually is what you are trying to get across - or what is
    that they are really trying to say to you?

    The more congruity between the verbal and non-verbal, and the clear and
    more authentic the intention, the clearer the communication will be.

    the intricate aspects, and complexities of our day to day communication
    activities. Enjoy your exploration.
    "Culture encompasses religion, food, what we wear,
    how we wear it, our language, marriage, music, what
    we believe is right or wrong, how we sit at the table, how
    we greet visitors, how we behave with loved ones, and a
    million other things." (Cristina De Rossi, an anthropologist
    at Barnet and Southgate College in London)
