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: Cognitive Bases of Second Language Fluency
Written By: Norman Segalowitz
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780805856613/
Series Title: Cognitive Science and Second Language Acquisition Series
Description:

Exploring fluency from multiple vantage points that together constitute a
cognitive science perspective, this book examines research in second
language acquisition and bilingualism that points to promising avenues for
understanding and promoting second language fluency. Cognitive Bases of
Second Language Fluency covers essential topics such as units of analysis
for measuring fluency, the relation of second language fluency to general
cognitive fluidity, social and motivational contributors to fluency, and
neural correlates of fluency. The author provides clear and accessible
summaries of foundational empirical work on speech production,
automaticity, lexical access, and other issues of relevance to second
language acquisition theory. Cognitive Bases of Second Language Fluency is
a valuable reference for scholars in SLA, cognitive psychology, and
language teaching, and it can also serve as an ideal textbook for advanced
courses in these fields.
