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: Harvey Sacks: Social Science and Conversation Analysis
Written By: David Silverman
Description:

This is the first book-length introduction to the work of Harvey Sacks, a highly influential sociologist who prior to his tragic death in 1975 developed the theories that came to be known as Conversation Analysis and ethnomethodology --theories that have grown to become extremely popular within linguistics, sociology, psychology and anthropology. This volume should be of interest to both students and scholars of Conversation Analysis and Sacks' work.
