  • This study focuses on how verbal humor can discursively construct identities, grounded in the assumption of social constructionism that identity is not given, but is constructed in social practice (Foucault, 1984), or discourse practices (Fairclough, 2001). I exploit a mix of Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) methods and Gricean pragmatics in the analysis of implicature-generated humor occurring in a speech delivered in the political context of a presidential election. The findings show that verbal humor (created through the use of language in contexts of situation) is not just for “fun” or “humor”, but also for performing a variety of pragmatic functions such as developing social rel...

  • Article


  • Authors: Nguyen, Hoa (2019)

  • This paper is aimed at reexamining intercultural communication from an identity social constructionist perspective and offering a linguistically-based research framework. The social constructionist approach holds that knowledge and reality are constructed through discourse, interactions and/or social interchange. This study maintains that language in action as communication in general serves dual purposes. It does not only build the social world, but also constructs identity - a critical issue in our global community recognized by many scholars (as most recently as Jandt, 2016; Fukuyama, 2018). Identity, though, is not just a social construct, but can operate as part of the purpose o...

  • This paper is a meta-analysis of the spread of Korean culture, often known as “Hallyu” or “the Korean Wave”, which is gaining the attention of many scholars and the public at large. It is catching on in many parts of the world, including Vietnam, and to such an extent that it is now claimed that it is being globalized and globalizing at the same time. This paper on Korean culture makes an attempt to see if there is an element of truth in this claim with special reference to Vietnam. In particular, it deals with the following relevant questions: what is the current status of Korean Culture in Vietnam? Whether it has had any impact on the host culture? and how will Korean Culture likely...

  • Within a short span of time since the end of the Korean War in the early 1950s,Korea has emerged on the world arena as an economic powerhouse and a success story which has been the envy of the world. Sea changes have taken place inKorea. World-wide interest inKorea as a nation, as an economy, or as a culture is generated. What is the cause behind all this?. This paper aims to sketch some of the defining cultural values which I believe are responsible for the Korean miracle. Some references will be made to Vietnamese culture as appropriate to deeply appreciate the similarities and as well as the differences.
