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: Lexical-Semantic Relations
Subtitle: Theoretical and practical perspectives
Edited By: Petra Storjohann

Series Title: Lingvisticæ Investigationes Supplementa 28
Description:

This collection of articles sketches the complexity of the subject of
lexical-semantic relations and addresses semantic, lexicographic and
computational issues on an array of meaning relations in different
languages. It brings together a variety of linguistic studies on the
contextualised construction of synonymy and antonymy in discourse. It shows
that research on language and cognition calls for empirical evidence from
different sources. This volume demonstrates how the internet, corpus data,
as well as psycholinguistic methods contribute profitably to gain insights
into the nature of the paradigmatics in actual language use. Furthermore,
the volume is concerned with practical and application-oriented research on
lexical databases, and it includes explorations of sense-related items in
dictionaries from both a text-technological and lexicographic perspective.
