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: A Notional Theory of Syntactic Categories
Written By: John M. Anderson
Description:

This book presents an innovative theory of syntactic categories and the
lexical classes they define. It revives the traditional idea that these are
to be distinguished notionally (semantically). The author proposes a
notation based on semantic features that accounts for the syntactic
behavior of classes. The book also presents a case for considering this
classification--again in a rather traditional vein--to be basic to
determining the syntactic structure of sentences.
