dc.description.abstractAlthough the concept of culture has been implemented in a range of different disciplines, many commentators on the topic are quick to point out that there is an overall lack of consensus surrounding its meaning, as well as the problem of defining it (Baldwin et al., 2006; Cronk, 2018; Fox & King, 2020; Gatherer, 2006; Jahoda, 2012; Johnson, 2013). This thesis seeks to discover how culture is understood by various disciplines and people. As such, a folk linguistic methodology and approach to understanding culture will be utilised to view the concept as it stands in various academic contexts, and also to discover how the people of Auckland understand culture in their everyday interaction with it. This will be done through the use of survey and thematic analysis, along with discussions of the role perspective and context play on our overall understandings of a given concept.en_NZ
