Linguistic culture: I define this as the sum totality of ideas, values, beliefs,
attitudes, prejudices, myths, religious strictures, and all the other cultural `baggage' that
speakers bring to their dealings with language from their culture. Linguistic culture also is
concerned with the transmission and codification of language and has bearing also on the
culture's notions of the value of literacy and the sanctity of texts.
And, of course, language itself is part of linguistic culture, since it is
learned rather than transmitted genetically.
