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: Metonymie und Diskurskontinuität im Französischen
Subtitle: [Metonymy and Discourse Continuity in French]
Written By: Beate Kern
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110234299-1
Series Title: Linguistische Arbeiten 531
Description:

Metonymy, apart from metaphor, represents an additional important cognitive
mechanism used in our everyday language. One can assume that such a
mechanism does not remain without any effects on the related structures in
the discourse. To study this hitherto rather neglected discursive dimension
of metonymy, excerpts from a French news magazine were analyzed with
respect to the interaction of metonymy with its discursive environment.
