Miscommunication between Members Belonging to Different Subcultures

Roland Lami


Based on theoretical perspective of some distinguishable authors in the field of sociology of communication, it will be intended to defend the hypothesis that non-communication between individuals or social groups during socializing processes produces problems related to psychosocial nature. Here, it is not the case that the actors of communication, such as “provider” and “recipient”, face organic difficulties to capture or make their message accessible, but the fact that they do not understand the codes through which they transmit messages and therefore misunderstand the roles as a result of miscomprehending these messages.Exactly, this discrepancy between roles and codes of communication along the socialization process produces a state of “stagnation” of social conventions and confusion of roles. Analyzing the phenomenon in this perspective tends to contribute to the understanding of the Albanian context, as frequent demographic changes during last two decades, inside and outside the territory, have led to difficulties for some social groups or individuals to be integrated into new social realities.
