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: Antropología lingüística
Written By: Alessandro Duranti
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=8483230925
Description:

In this innovative textbook, Alessandro Duranti introduces linguistic
anthropology as an interdisciplinary field which studies language as a
cultural resource and speaking as a cultural practice. The theories and
methods of linguistic anthropology are introduced through a discussion of
linguistic diversity, grammar in use, the role of speaking in social
interaction, the organisation and meaning of conversational structures, and
the notion of participation as a unit of analysis. An entire chapter is
devoted to the notion of culture, and there are invaluable methodological
chapters on ethnography and transcription. Original in its treatment and
yet eminently clear and readable, Linguistic Anthropology will appeal to
both upper-level undergraduate and graduate students.
