Abstract This article explores the challenges of culture and language on intercultural online dispute resolution. It is arguable that culture and language not only bring meaning to the world, they shape one's cognitive processes, ie perception, interpretations and judgments. Through the examination of Asian language and discourse, particularly Chinese, the article explores an implicit social meaning that is centred in Asian online communication styles. It also examines the alternative strategies, such as the use of a private vocabulary shared by members of the same culture.
