RESEMBLANCE BETWEEN LANGUAGE AND CULTURE: SOCIOLINGUISTICS PERSPECTIVE
In the paper, the first language learners fascinated in their own culture, associates between language and culture based on sociolinguistics often does not come to question and second or foreign language learners, where true cultural facts and understandings are situated well beyond the textbook, an understanding of language guesses a very different shape. While it is feasible to divide language and culture, one has to question the legitimacy and insinuations such separation brings. This paper also initiates the ideas of language and culture, and investigates the viability of their relationship based on the three possible relationships proposed by Wardhaugh (i.e. the structure of the language determines the way we use language, cultural values determine language usage, and the neutral claim that a relationship does not exist). The significance of cultural proficiency is then considered for its importance to language education and the implications it holds for language learning and policy in the societal perspective.
