It has been argued elsewhere that the meaning or work (MOW) concept has not been clearly operationalized and consistently used in research Iiterature (Poptampu, 1997 under review). This point is taken up by this research where the meaning of work is hypothesized to be characterized in the following; terms: that it is derived from an external religious frame of reference and is considered as central to life. The data and analyses are rather preliminary, but offer some support for these two hypotheses.
