In communications and linguistics, context refers to the meaning of a message (such as a sentence), its relationship to other parts of the message (such as a book), the environment in which the communication occurred, and any perceptions which may be associated with the communication.

It can be defined as the surroundings, circumstances, environment, background or settings which determine, specify, or clarify the meaning of an event.
