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: Towards an Elegant Syntax
Written By: Michal Brody
Series Title: Routledge Leading Linguists
Description:

This is a book of essays concerned with syntax, written between 1980 and 2001, in which the search for theoretical elegance takes centre stage. The conceptual difference between 'elegance' and the minimalist search for 'perfection' is examined and the consequences are shown to be wide ranging and radical, leading to a novel approach with a set of simplified potential primitives and axioms.
