How do people from  different cultures exchange information? The diversity of college students at  Bucknell creates a surprising amount of misunderstandings in communication.  Overcoming the language and culture barrier is crucial. Therefore, a project  has been designed to explain and try to solve this problem. We will survey 15  college students from different backgrounds by setting up a DCT--Discourse  Completion Test about some daily situations and ask them to fill out their  answers. Based on the collected information, we can analyze the results. The  research examines the nature of locution, illocution, and perlocution among  different cultures.
