Abstract:Almost all societies are becoming multilingual, multicultural, and multiethnic due to globalization or multinational migration. More people live in diaspora. Hence, the challenge is to deal with marginalization, and identities—both old and new. Language identifies the speaker, and human identity is embedded in the recognition of language, which is part of the biological self. Thus, the diversity of languages produces diverse individuals of unique abilities. The dialogical character of language, which implies mutual interdependence, helps in developing individuality. In today’s world of globalization, we see astonishing diversity of seeing, being, behaving and communicating. The purpose of this paper is to develop awareness and understanding of socio-linguistic diversity, recognition of other cultures’ validity, and respect and admiration for all-inclusivity in order to manage intercultural interactions for peaceful living.
