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.


Book Information

   

Title: Focus
Subtitle: Linguistic, Cognitive, and Computational Perspectives
Edited By: Peter Bosch
Rob van der Sandt
Description:

This book presents a collection of papers on the issue of focus in its
broadest sense. While commonly considered as being related to phenomena
such as presupposition and anaphora, focusing is much more widely spread,
and it is this pervasiveness that the current collection addresses. The
work loosely originates from a conference held in 1994 in Schloss
Wolfsbrunnen in Germany, although only a small subpart of the proceedings
papers presented are included here. The contributed papers have been
reworked for the current volume to present a coherent study of the subject.
