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: Exploring the Dynamics of Second Language Writing
Edited By: Barbara Kroll
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn= 0521529832
Series Title: Cambridge Applied Linguistics
Description:

A collection of 13 original articles, this book is intended to provide a series of discussions about multiple aspects of second language writing, presenting chapters that collectively address a range of issues that are important to new teachers at the post-secondary level. The chapters provide scholarly visions, insight, and interpretation oriented toward explaining the field of teaching academic writing to non-native speakers. The book is designed to provide foundational content-knowledge in this area, each chapter authored by recognized experts in the field. Throughout the chapters, presentation and review of scholarship is presented primarily in the interest of understanding how such knowledge directly or potentially imparts teaching, making this a pedagogically relevant book. In addition to helping train new teachers, the book will serve as an updated reference book for practising teachers and scholars to consult.
