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: Cognitive Technologies and the Pragmatics of Cognition
Edited By: Itiel E. Dror
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=BCT%2012
Series Title: Benjamins Current Topics 12
Description:

Technology has long been a helpful aid in human cognitive activities. With
its growing sophistication and usage, technology is now taking a more
intrinsic and active role in human cognition. The shift from an external
aid to being an internal component of cognitive processing reflects a
revolution in technology, cognition, and their interaction. The creation of
such 'cognitive technologies' transforms the traditional instrumental
function of technology to a constitutive role that shapes and defines
cognition itself. This book, which was originally published as a Special
Issue of Pragmatics & Cognition (13:3, 2005), explores the new
horizon of these 'cognitive technologies' and their interactions with humans.
