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.

In today’s globalized world of international contact and multicultural
interaction, effective intercultural communication is increasingly seen as
a pre-requisite for social harmony and organisational success. This
handbook takes a “problem-solving” approach to the various issues that
arise in real-life intercultural interaction. The editors have brought
together experts from a range of disciplines, including linguistics,
psychology and anthropology, to provide a multi-disciplinary perspective on
the field, whilst simultaneously anchoring it in Applied Linguistics.
