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: Constraints in Discourse 2
Edited By: Peter Kühnlein

Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 194
Description:

Text is highly structured, and structured at a variety of levels. But what
are the units of text, which levels are at stake, and what establishes the
structure that binds the units together? This volume, just as the
predecessor a spin off of one of the workshops on constraints in discourse,
contains the most recent, thoroughly reviewed papers by specialists in the
area that try to give answers to such questions. It helps deepening the
understanding of a multiplicity of mechanisms and constraints that are at
work during production and comprehension of well-formed discourse.

Researchers from linguistics, both formal and psycholinguistics, artificial
intelligence, and cognitive sciences will appreciate this book as a
valuable resource for information and inspiration.
