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: Non-Transformational Syntax
Subtitle: Formal and Explicit Models of Grammar
Written By: Robert D. Borsley
Kersti Börjars
URL: http://www.wiley.com/remtitle.cgi?isbn=0631209654
Description:

This authoritative introduction explores the main non-transformational syntactic
frameworks: Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar, Lexical-Functional
Grammar, Categorial Grammar, and Simpler Syntax. The chapters by key
linguists in the field cover elementary principles and more advanced issues and
also explore a range of issues that arise in connection with these contemporary
approaches, including questions about processing and acquisition. By shedding
new light on alternate approaches to the phenomena of syntax, “Non-
Transformational Syntax” represents an important contribution to the study of
formal linguistics.
