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: Language Acquisition and Development
Subtitle: Proceedings of GALA 2009
Edited By: João Costa
Ana Castro
Maria Lobo
Fernanda Pratas
Description:

The present volume contains 43 papers presented at the 2009 issue of the
conference GALA -- Generative Approaches to Language Acquisition, held in
Lisbon. The volume contains a very wide and rich range of topics,
reflecting the immense quality of the event: the acquisition of languages
from different families is studied; comparisons between acquisition of L1,
L2 and atypical language development are made; all areas of language
development are explored (phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics,
lexicon, pragmatics and interactions between components).

The proceedings of GALA are an unavoidable reference for those interested
in Language Acquisition, Language Development and Child Language.
