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: Approaches to Media Discourse
Edited By: Allan Bell
Peter Garrett
URL: http://www.blackwellpub.com/asp/book.asp?ref=0631198873
Description:

This collection brings together in one volume current leading approaches to the study of media discourse.


Its focus is on the media text (spoken, written or visual), but it also addresses issues of the production and reception of media discourse. Chapters provide a brief outline of the authors approach to media discourse and then demonstrate how the approach works in practice by close analysis of sample texts. The applicability of the frameworks is discussed, and guidelines are offered on how to use them.
