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.

Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 284
Description:

This volume contains 22 revised papers originally presented at the 17th
International Conference on Historical Linguistics, held August 2005 in
Madison, Wisconsin, USA. The papers cover a broad range of languages,
including well-studied languages of Europe but also Aramaic, Zoque and
Uto-Aztecan, Japanese and Korean, Afrikaans, and the Pilbara languages of
Australia. The theoretical approaches taken are equally diverse, often
bringing together aspects of 'formal' and 'functional' theories in a single
contribution. Many of the chapters provide fresh data, including several
drawing on data from electronic corpora. Topics range from traditional
comparative reconstruction to prosodic change and the role of processing in
syntactic change.
