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: Nähe und Distanz im Kontext variationslinguistischer Forschung [Proximity and Distance in the Context of Research into Linguistic Variation]
Edited By: Vilmos Ágel
Mathilde Hennig
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110220865-1
Series Title: Linguistik - Impulse & Tendenzen 35
Description:

The terms ‘proximity’ and ‘distance’ signify conceptual characteristics of
orality and literacy. In that branch of linguistic research dealing with
linguistic variation, ‘proximity vs. distance’ is a central area of enquiry
along with fields such as dialectology, languages for specialist purposes
or text typology. The present volume examines commonalities and differences
along the topic areas of ‘proximity and diatopic variation,’ ‘proximity and
diachronic variation,’ ‘proximity and diaphasic variation’ and ‘proximity
and grammaticalisation.’
