Communication and culture have a reciprocal relationship. Culture becomes part of communication behavior and in turn communication also determines maintaining, developing or inheriting culture. On the one hand, communication is a mechanism for disseminating the culture norms of society, either horizontally from one society to another, or vertically from one generations to the next.
