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.

Description
UiL OTS aims at developing scientific expertise in the systems underlying language, speech and their use. The institute's objective is threefold: to increase our understanding of language and speech, to train researchers who will be able to make a valuable contribution to this field of knowledge, and to share our knowledge with institutions beyond the academic world. We also participate actively in joint research with other disciplines such as logic, computer science, neuroscience, biology, psychology and sociology. At UiL OTS, the human language faculty is studied from a wide range of perspectives: Computational Linguistics & Logic, Experimental Psycholinguistics, Language Development (Language Acquisition and Language Teaching), Language Use, Morphology & Phonology, Phonetics, Syntax & Semantics. UiL OTS seeks to exploit the synergies between these various areas to the full. See http://www-uilots.let.uu.nl/
