Kmieciak 1 Zachary Kmieciak Mrs. Boyer English 160 - #11818 11 September 2006 Community and Culture as a Whole When first thinking of both community and culture it is difficult to think of them as the same. Community seems to connect more to people together to help one another while culture is more about race and background. The dictionary Unabridged Dictionary V. 1.0.1 defines community as a group of people that reside in a specific locality and share a common government. Adding to that definition the American Heritage Dictionary says that this group also shares common interests. Culture is defined in Unabridged Dictionary V. 1.0.1 as behaviors, beliefs, and characteristics of a particular social, ethnic, or age group. The American Heritage Dictionary adds to that by saying that these behaviors and beliefs are socially transmitted. These definitions show how different these two words are. However, looking more into it and away from the definitions it becomes easier to see that culture and community are actually connected.
