It is generally accepted that there is a close relationship between language and culture and also between culture and the values and perceptions that influence individual actions and behavior. For this reason, study of the relationship between language and well-being has important implications for our understanding of human experience seen through the perspectives of a range of disciplines, including economics, health, education, and culture studies. While well-being is a complex construct that has many aspects and variations, it is also the case that it may be rooted in very basic aspects of human interaction such as language and the ability to communicate. This can be seen as the starting point of a chain of factors that reach into a number of domains of interaction that spread outward from the individual, beginning from a sense of identity and the ability to communicate effectively, and reaching into the macroeconomic environment of education and work.
