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: Chomsky:
Subtitle: Ideas and Ideals
Written By: Neil Smith
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521546885
Description:

Chomsky has had a major influence on modern linguistics, psychology, and
philosophy. In this rigorous yet accessible account of Chomsky's work, Neil
Smith analyzes Chomsky's key contributions to the study of both language
and the mind. He gives a detailed exposition of Chomsky's linguistic
theorizing, and examines the ideas for which he is best known. Finally,
Smith examines Chomsky's political ideas and how these fit intellectually
with his scholarly work. Throughout, Smith explores the controversy
surrounding Chomsky's work, and explains why he has been both adulated and
vilified.
