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: Prosodic Orientation in English Conversation
Written By: Beatrice Szczepek Reed
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/newsearch/Catalogue.aspx?is=0230008720
Description:

This study is the first to describe and analyze prosodic orientation, a
conversational strategy by which speakers design their speaking voice
according to the vocal patterns used by their conversational partners. The
analyses are based on instances of natural everyday talk. The book explores
forms and functions of prosodic orientation, and offers a new perspective
on prosody in conversation.
