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:   DEAR LINGUISTS,

TWO MONTHS AGO I SUBMITTED A QUERY CONCERNING RESEARCH ON LANGUAGE AND
COMMUNICATION AWARENESS OF ADULTS ACTIVELY ENGAGED IN BUSINESS AND
ADMINISTRATION (LINGUIST 9.1679). I WOULD LIKE TO THANK DENNIS
R. PRESTON (PRESTON@PILOT.MSU.EDU), CARLA LUIJKS (CL@ISDNET.CO.ZA) AND
STACY KRAINZ (KRAINZ@ACSU.BUFFALO.EDU) FOR THEIR HELP, ESPECIALLY FOR
THE REFERENCES TO AN UNPUBLISHED STUDY AND TO A BOOK THAT WILL SHORTLY
APPEAR:

- NANCY NIEDZIELKY/DENNIS R. PRESTON: FOLK LINGUISTICS, BERLIN: MOUTON DE
GRUYTER.

- STACY KRAINZ: A SOCIIOLINGUISTIC INVESTIGATION OF THE COGNITIVE
ORGANIZATION OF LANGUAGE AWARENESS: MALE VS. FEMALE PERSPECTIVES,
STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK, BUFFALO, MAY 1996.

AS THE NUMBER OF RESPONSES WAS MODERATE, I SUPPOSE THAT STUDIES ON
LANGUAGE AND COMMUNICATION AWARENESS IN THE WORK PLACE ARE NOT VERY
NUMEROUS OR EVEN NOT EXISTING AT ALL. I WOULD STILL APPRECIATE ANY
FURTHER INFORMATION ABOUT RESEARCH IN THIS AREA. THANKS AGAIN.

SINCERELY
