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: Multilingualism and Applied Comparative Linguistics: Pedagogical Perspectives
Edited By: Franks Boers
Jeroen Darquennes
Rita Temmerman
Description:

In February 2006 the first international conference on Multilingualism and
Applied Comparative Linguistics (MACL) was held in Brussels, Belgium. The
aim of the MACL conference was to bring together scholars from various
branches of applied linguistics with a shared interest in cross-linguistic
and cross-cultural communication. The conference thus fostered an exchange
of knowledge and expertise among researchers from various disciplines,
including educational linguistics, cultural linguistics, terminography,
translation studies and studies of specialised languages.

The present book is the first of two volumes containing a selection from
the approximately 120 papers that were presented at that three-day event.
