    Global communication is the live wire of globalisation because global communication through ICT makes the world a global village and equally, globalises the world. For example, ZEE World has made ladies throughout the universe to watch and it’s content makes them believe that love is sweet and never bitter. Another example, global communication has made the world a global village, a war or natural disaster in any part of the world is reported by the media and draws global attention, that is globalisation

    Global communication is the live wire of globalization because global communication has help in easy communication. This is also good because multiple people can communicate at the same time.global communication has also help in bringing chat group like Facebook, WhatsApp and fax for easy communication.
    2 killer media are those media that dominate the already existing media eg. CNN dominant our local station like NTA.
    Killer language are language that dominate our local language like English language dominant Igbo.
    Global communication help globalization to move easily because through the means of communication people will easily associate with one anther.
    Killer language that we now experience like English language is what we got from killer media like CNN. Therefore killer media, killer language, globalization easily work with global communication.

    Killer languages are those foreign languages (English, French, Chinese, Portuguese, etc) that reduces or terminates the existence of native languages. Killer media are those mass media (CNN, BBC, AL JAZERA, FOX TV, I etc) that portends danger, reduces or terminates the viewership of local media (ABS, NTA, etc.). The relationship between killer language, killer media, global communication and globalisation is that the killer media uses killer language to communicate globally (global communication – communicating across boundaries and frontiers) and this results in globalisation.That is, killer languages aids killer media and killer media aids global communication and global communication leads to globalisation.
