    The major problem in the company is the interaction of staff and cooperation between divisions. If employees do not have valid connections, they will pull down the advancement of the company. Several researchers found that communication skills can affect the operation of the whole enterprise. However, conservation skills still have unitary cognition, and some specialists recognize the importance of connection. Some people think that communication just has an impact on personal friendships. Therefore, this article collects data on communication behavior and work performance from employees. The information relies on the literature review method to observe separately the relationship work team of individuals and the communication of departments. This article studies the relationship between staff and company with communication. In the research, communication skills have a direct ratio between staff sense of belonging and the active environment in the company. These skills have an enormous influence on both the work performance of individuals and the run of the enterprise. Communication skills can improve the capacity of staff and hasten the reconciliation of sections. Communication is one of the serious factors to value in order to consider the entire framework of the company.

    In this paper, CiteSpace analysis was used to summarize the Chinese phonetics teaching in the past 42 years for visual analysis. Firstly, we manually searched the China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI) database from 1982-2024, and got 961 valid documents after de-emphasis, which were imported into CiteSpace software for the visual knowledge mapping analysis. In terms of keyword clustering, we obtained 10 keyword clusters in 4 major categories, such as phonological ontology knowledge, bias analysis, pedagogical suggestions, and country-specific analysis. In terms of keyword emergence, we found that the academic community has focused on the study of Chinese phonological ontology from 1994 to 2013, and that the term "pedagogical strategies" first appeared in 1999, followed by a slow transition in 2011, and then a slow transition in 2011, and a slow transition in 2011. Research on "teaching and learning" has always been in the hot spot. The number of articles published in 2012 and 2014 had two high points, 39 and 41, respectively. Finally, the author suggests that the research on Chinese phonetics will continue to grow, and with the rapid development of information technology, Chinese phonetics will integrate more new media and educational technology tools to improve teaching efficiency and quality.

    The paper aims to criticize the monotonicity universal theory of quantifiers to question the universal applicability of the monotonicity theory. A qualitative analysis method was employed, focusing on counterexamples of monomorphemic quantifiers from English, Japanese, and French to critically evaluate the monotonicity universal theory by analyzing these quantifiers’ behavior and examining the implications of findings on the theory’s validity. The significant finding was that not all monomorphemic quantifiers, such as few in English, peu in French, and すこし in Japanese, are monotonic. Therefore, this result contradicted the existing claim that all monomorphemic natural language quantifiers are monotonic (upward monotonic, downward monotonic, or non-monotonic), challenging the universal of the monotonicity theory of quantifiers. The research concludes that the monotonicity universal theory of quantifiers does not universally apply to all monomorphemic natural language quantifiers and underscores the theory’s one-sidedness and imperfections. Hence, this work highlights the need for a broader approach to understanding semantic universal and quantifiers’ behavior in natural languages.

    This paper investigates the nuances of euphemism language in refuse, comparing English and Chinese expressions. Politeness, a crucial aspect of communication, exhibits distinct cultural influences. The backdrop of communication underscores the pivotal role of politeness, particularly shaped by cultural disparities in English and Chinese. A thorough examination of these differences contributes to a comprehensive grasp of cultural variations in language expression. The study aims to discern commonalities and differences in the use of euphemism language, exploring frequency, expressions, and cultural implications. Adopting a comparative analysis approach, linguistic data related to requests is collected and analyzed. Findings reveal shared social strategies and illuminate the influential role of cultural backgrounds in shaping language expression during requests. English tends to be more direct, while Chinese prefers softer, more indirect approaches. Social relationships are crucial, with English culture maintaining looser ties and Chinese culture prioritizing face-saving and relationship preservation. Pragmatic strategies, including the use of mitigated language, are influenced by context and participant relationships. This comparative exploration not only deepens our understanding of cultural differences between English and Chinese but also provides valuable insights for linguistics and cross-cultural communication research, enhancing our appreciation for the intricate interplay between language and culture.
