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: Wahrnehmungsdialektologie
Subtitle: Das Obersächsische im Alltagsverständnis von Laien
Written By: Christina Ada Anders

Series Title: Linguistik - Impulse & Tendenzen 36
Description:

How do ordinary people perceive regional modes of speech? This question is
often posed at present within German dialectology, without however having
produced a satisfactory answer. As part of an empirical pilot study in
Saxony, Saxon-Anhalt, Thuringia and South Brandenburg, the present
investigation uses the example of Upper Saxon to examine how the structures
of everyday language-related knowledge can be observed and described, to
look at the parameters within which this knowledge is organised and to
determine the role played by extra-linguistic factors in the perception of
dialects.
