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.


Book Information

   

Title: The Ecology and Semiotics of Language Learning
Subtitle: A Sociocultural Perspective
Series Title: Educational Linguistics 3
Description:

The ecological perspective on language and language education has in recent
years become a major focus of interest in the fields of second language
teaching and learning, and linguistics and education in general. This is
the first book-length attempt to provide a comprehensive overview of an
ecology of language learning, including both theoretical discussions on
language, semiotics, emergence, and self, and the practical consequences of
an ecological view for classroom work.

This book is of interest to all language educators, second and foreign
language teachers and researchers, and other education professionals.
