Edinburgh Festival
This is a list of arts and cultural festivals regularly taking place in Edinburgh, Scotland. The city has become known for its festivals since the establishment in 1947 of the Edinburgh
Edinburgh
International Festival and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe which runs alongside it. The latter is the largest event of its kind in the world. The term Edinburgh
Edinburgh
Festival is commonly heard, but strictly speaking it is a misnomer. There is no single Edinburgh
Edinburgh
Festival. Typically, when people use the phrase, they are thinking of the largest individual festival, the Fringe. Some may also use it as shorthand for the Edinburgh

International Festival. Largely, the usage arises from confusion. The city's festivals are regarded by many visitors as part of the same event, even though they are distinct events put on by different, unrelated organisations

High- And Low-context Cultures
High-context culture and low-context culture are terms used to describe cultures based on how explicit the messages exchanged are and how much the context means in certain situations. These concepts were first introduced by the anthropologist Edward T. Hall in his 1976 book Beyond Culture. According to Hall, messages exchanged in a high-context culture carry implicit meanings with more information than the actually spoken parts, while in low-context cultures, the messages have a clear meaning, with nothing implied beyond the words used.[1] In a higher-context culture, the way words are said is more important than the words themselves, so many things are left unsaid, relying on the context of the moment and the culture as a whole to impart meaning
