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: Introduction to Early Modern English
Written By: Terry Nevalainen
Description:

"An introduction to Early Modern English," helps students of English and
linguistics to place the language of the period 1500-1700 in its historical
context as a language with a common core but also one which varies across
time, regionally and socially, and according to register. The volume
focuses on the structure of what contemporaries called the General Dialect
-- its spelling, vocabulary, grammar and punctuation -- and on its
dialectal origins. The book also discusses the language situation and
linguistic anxieties in England at a time when Latin exerted a strong
influence on the rising standard language.
