What You Need to Know About : Conversational Constraints Theory

Culture-based conversational constraints theory, developed by Min-Sun Kim and her colleagues, explains why people from different cultures say what they say. In contrast with mostly descriptive research on cross-cultural strategy choices, the major goal of this research program has been to understand, from a goals perspective, why a particular conversational strategy is chosen crossculturally. This theory derives, in part, from research on metagoals in interpersonal communication contexts. However, the focus of the culturebased conversational constraints theory has been to understand the cognitive underpinnings of message production across cultures.
