Communication Accommodation Theory

Edited by Howard Giles

Most people modify their ways of speaking, writing, texting, and e-mailing, and so on, according to the people with whom they are communicating. This fascinating book asks why we 'accommodate' to others in this way, and explores the various social consequences arising from it.

Title: Mood at the Interface
Written By: Josep F. Quer
Series Title: LOT International Series 1. UiL OTS dissertation
Description:

Mood at the interface offers a unified study of the grammatical contribution of mood in the whole spectrum of subordination. The basic hypothesis of the work is that indicative/subjunctive alternations constitute the overt marking of a shift in the model where a proposition is evaluated. It is shown that such an account in terms of mood shift succeeds in providing a wide empirical coverage for this rather murky domain and supplies a strong argument for the interaction of this verbal category with the different components of the grammar. The study concentrates on Romance languages, with special emphasis on Catalan and Spanish.
