Why do people not use language to communicate in Albertros culture ? How far do you think such a culture reaches before transforming into another cultural form ?


Thanks

By the way, is there any remark about such a culture in current social trend you would like to include, especially the society you are living in ?
One of modern culture I would like to remind you of is the internet culture I so-name myself in which I personally think you can find more freedom to have your own opinions around here and there, whenever and whatever.

Albertros culture

Couldn't find it in HRAF. Maybe it was misspelled, or reference to a fictional culture?

Albertros...Albertors...Albators...Albatros.......Albatross!

"The Albatross Culture" is a role-playing game to demonstrate to students the complexity of culture...

Now that I have read what you are refering to I think that what a person is exposed to of the 'Albatros Culture' is specifically made to be simplistic to throw off the perceptions of the participants. From what I read there really isn't any reason to believe that the 'Albatros' don't use language and really even just the three simple expressions used in the excersize are a sort of language. I think that the limitation of the language is only supposed represent a lack of common language and an ability to communicate and understand what is occuring.

Did you actually participate in this excersize? What were your impressions?
