A student has asked me for references on technical communication and
cultural differences--e.g., translation (and transliteration) problems,
failed humour for cultural reasons, inadvertant taboo-breakage, successes
or failures of things like international icons or Basic English, and so on.

Please send references to my personal mail box (the address is in my
signature file below), and I will compile a bibliography for the list.

PLEASE NOTE: I am not asking for anecdotes and stories, but references to
publications. (Feel free to post the former if you like; listmembers may
very well be interested, but please send only references to me).

Thanks in advance for any references, and, in any case, thanks for at least
reading this message (Logendra's right: his way's better, paradox or no).
