This study debates the distinction between intracultural (IRC) and intercultural communication (IC) from a socio-cognitive viewpoint, considering this link as a continuum. Whilst moving towards the hypothetical right end (IC), communication hinges less upon core common ground, formulaic language, standards and frames, and is marked more by new common ground, ad hoc produced expressions, norm generating efforts and individual inventiveness in settling communicative difficulties.
