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.

Linguistic Field: History of Linguistics
Abstract: This paper (written in the Dutch language) points out that the Austrian philosopher Rudolf Carnap, who later came to the USA, published books about the philosophy of language, and used terms such as 'transformation rules', which were later also used by Chomsky in his philosophy of language. This is seen as evidence that Carnap was a precursor of Chomsky.
