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: Morphosyntactic Change
Subtitle: Functional and Formal Perspectives
Written By: Olga Fischer
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199267057
Series Title: Oxford Surveys in Syntax & Morphology
Description:

Olga Fischer presents a critical analysis of morphosyntactic change and the
mechanisms that trigger it. She shows how changes in discourse, lexicon,
semantics, pragmatics, and sound interact with changes in morphosyntax, and
considers the interface between the internal and external factors of
change. She reveals how rates and speed of change in morphosyntax can be
used to explore the degree to which grammar is innate or learned. Her book
will be of central interest and value to students of linguistic change, at
graduate level and above.
