In the field of linguistics, focus is often given to the universal grammar and phonology. In the past few years, studies have also dealt with sociolinguistic and pragmatic issues which contribute great insights into our understanding of other aspects of linguistics. Discussions were around, for instance, communication strategies (Kasper & Kellerman, 2014), gossip genre (Herring & Paolillo, 2006), and greeting genre across cultures (Ahlers, 2006). However, the study of lying has not received much attention, particularly in the Asian context. To add to the existing literature, this chapter provides a discussion on linguistic deception, particularly from an intercultural communication perspective.
