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.

Summary:   SUM: ENGLISH WORD FREQUENCY

I WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL WHO RESPONDED TO MY REQUEST FOR INFORMATION ON ENGLISH WORD FREQUENCY. THEY ARE (IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER) AARON LAWSON, CHRIS BECKWITH, CHRISTOPHER HOGAN, BETTY PHILLIPS, SUSANNE BORGWALDT, MARK SHARP. THE FOLLOWING IS THE SUMMARY:

AARON LAWSON ADL6@CORNELL.EDU IS THE CURRENT DIRECTOR OF CORNELL UNIVERSITY'S SPOKEN NORTH AMERICAN ENGLISH PILOT CORPUS PROJECT. CURRENTLY THEIR INFORMATION IS NOT ACCESSIBLE ON THE WEB BUT AARON LAWSON HAS KINDLY HELPED ME TO SOLVE MY PROBLEMS.

CHRIS BECKWITH RECOMMENDED THE FOLLOWING WEBSITE:
WWW.ITRI.BRIGHTON.AC.UK/~ADAM.KILGARRIFF/BNC-README.HTML

CHRISTOPHER HOGAN COMPLING@JUNO.COM THINKS THAT NOWADAYS WORD FREQUENCIES CAN BE EASILY PRODUCED FROM AVAILABLE CORPORA AND IT ISNOT LIKELY THAT LISTS OF WORD FREQUENCIES WOULD BE PUBLISHED. (MAYBE THAT'S WHY WE CANNOT FIND THE LATEST WORD FREQUENCY LISTS PUBLISHED.)

SUSANNE BORGWALDT BORGWALD@PSY.UVA.NL RECOMMENDED THE CELEX-DATABASE WITH FREQUENCY INFORMATION FOR ENGLISH, DUTCH AND GERMAN: HTTP://WWW.KUN.NL/CELEX

MARK SHARP INDICATED THAT THE UNIVERSITY OF READING LINGUISTICS DEPT HAS A COMPUTER CORPUS, AND THAT A FREQUENCY LIST MAY HAVE BEEN GENERATED FROM IT. HE PROVIDED THE FOLLOWING E-MAIL ADDRESS: S.C.ARNFIELD@READING.AC.UK.

BETTY PHILLIPS REMINDED ME OF A PREVIOUS SUMMARY THAT WAS POSTED ON LINGUIST LIST IN FEBRUARY 1998.

THANKS AGAIN TO ALL WHO KINDLY RESPONDED TO MY REQUEST.

BEST REGARDS,

JEAN WANG, DEPARTMENT OF LINGUISTICS, SIMON FRASER UNIVERSITY
