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: Accented America
Subtitle: The Cultural Politics of Multilingual Modernism
Written By: Joshua L. Miller
URL: http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780195337006.do
Series Title: Modernist Literature and Culture
Description:

"Accented America" is a sweeping study of U.S. literature between 1890-1950
that reveals a long history of English-Only nationalism: the political
claim that U.S. citizens must speak a nationally distinctive form of
English. This perspective presents U.S. literary works as playfully,
painfully, and ambivalently engaged with language politics, thereby
rewiring both narrative form and national identity.
