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: English Historical Metrics
Edited By: J. J. Anderson
Description:

This volume identifies historical metrics as an important discipline within
English studies and raises significant questions about the composition and
transmission of early English verse. The chronological range of the book
covers the Old English to the pre-Renaissance periods, while its
theoretical range is multidisciplinary. The keynote introduction by Thomas
Cable identifies major current issues within the field. The work concludes
with an extensive and up-to-date bibliography which includes linguistics,
philological and text-critical work. The distinguished team of contributors
includes: Russom, McCully, and Obst (focusing on Old English, with a
conspectus by Stockwell); Minkova (on the Ormulum and early Middle
English); Borroff, Matonis, and Osberg (Middle English verse); Bunt and
Duggan (editing and Middle English metrics); and Duffell and Youmans (the
origin and structure of the Chaucerian long line).
