What comes closer to being true is that communication is the foundation of culture.

I think cultures shifts the communication because culture constitutes traditions, location, beliefs, history, and many other factors that impact the way people communicate. When i was studying international communications, I was amazed how much your culture effect your communication styles. Also, I'm married to Russian lady, and when we just started chatting on dream'marriage, I was shocked how much collectivist cultures dependent on relations and connections cuz in the US it all about individual rights and perspectives.
