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,

IN AUGUST 2007, I POSTED A REQUEST ON LL FOR PARTICIPANTS IN A SURVEY
(HTTP://LINGUISTLIST.ORG/ISSUES/18/18-2303.HTML) TO EXAMINE THE FACTORS
THAT CONTRIBUTE TO BEING CALLED BY THE WRONG NAME. THANKS TO ALL OF YOU WHO
RESPONDED AND YOUR PATIENCE IN AWAITING THE RESULTS. I REPORTED RESULTS IN
A CONFERENCE PRESENTATION AT THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE AMERICAN NAME
SOCIETY IN JANUARY 2009 AND CLEVELAND EVANS IN THE OMAHA WORLD HERALD
DISCUSSES THESE IN A RECENT COLUMN:

THE RESULTS ALSO APPEARED IN A POSTER PRESENTED LAST JULY:
GRIFFIN, Z. M., & WANGERMAN, T. (2008, JULY). 'LISA, PATTY, SELMA, SNOWBALL
... MAGGIE!' NAMES THAT PARENTS CALL THEIR CHILDREN BY MISTAKE. POSTER
PRESENTED AT THE FIFTH INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON LANGUAGE PRODUCTION,
ANNAPOLIS, MD.

POSTED AT:
HTTP://HOMEPAGE.PSY.UTEXAS.EDU/HOMEPAGE/FACULTY/GRIFFIN/PUBLICATIONS_FILES/GRIFFIN_WANGERMAN2008.GIF

THE INITIAL FINDINGS HAVE RAISED MANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS AND I PLAN ON
CONDUCTING A FOLLOW UP SURVEY. I’LL POST A NOTICE HERE AGAIN WHEN I DO.

THANKS AGAIN,
ZENZI GRIFFIN
