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.

Description:

Antibiotics will soon no longer cure many illnesses due to escalating
bacterial resistance. Still, physicians continue prescribing antibiotics

asking how small differences in phrasing affect prescribing decisions, and
how physicians deal with the social dilemma pitting individuals against a
greater social good.
