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: The Exploration of Multilingualism
Subtitle: Development of research on L3, multilingualism and multiple language acquisition
Edited By: Larissa Aronin
Britta Hufeisen
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=AALS%206
Series Title: AILA Applied Linguistics Series 6
Description:

This volume offers an ontogenetic perspective on research on L3,
multilingualism and multiple languages acquisition and a conceptually
updated picture of multilingualism studies and third/multiple language
acquisition studies. The contributions by prominent scholars of
multilingualism present state-of-the-art accounts of the significant
aspects in this field. This unique collection of articles adopts a
broad-spectrum and synthesized view on the topic. The volume, largely
theoretical and classificatory, features main theories, prominent
researchers and important research trends. The articles also contain
factual and historical material from previous and current decades of
research and offer practical information on research resources. For
lecturers, students, educators, researchers, and social workers operating
in multilingual contexts, The Exploration of Multilingualism is
manifestly relevant.
