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.

I RECEIVED THE FOLLOWING RESPONSES:

STUDIES ON THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ORTHOGRAPHY AND SPEECH PRODUCTION WELLS, S. (1995). A SPEECH ERROR INVESTIGATION OF THE IMPACT OF ORTHOGRAPHY ON JAPANESE SPEECH PRODUCTION. PAPERS FROM THE 31ST REGIONAL MEETING OF THE CHICAGO LINGUISTICS SOCIETY. CHICAGO: UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO PRESS. 478-89

STUDIES ON THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ORTHOGRAPHY AND PHONEME AWARENESS READ, C. A., ZHANG, Y., NIE, H., & DING, B. (1987). THE ABILITY TO MANIPULATE SPEECH SOUNDS DEPENDS ON KNOWING ALPHABETIC READING. COGNITION, 24, 31-44. AUTHORS FOUND THAT PRIOR LEARNING OF ROMAN/LATIN ALPHABET AFFECTED CHINESE SPEAKERS' PERFORMANCE IN CERTAIN PHONEMIC AWARENESS TASKS.

STUDIES ON CHILDREN'S SEGMENTATION OF SENTENCES LEONG,C. K. (1991). >FROM PHONEMIC AWARENESS TO PHONOLOGICAL PROCESSING TO LANGUAGE ACCESS IN CHILDREN DEVELOPING READING PROFICIENCY. IN D. J. SAWYER & B. J. FOX (EDS.), PHONOLOGICAL AWARENESS IN READING: THE EVOLUTION OF CURRENT PERSPECTIVES. NEW YORK: SPRINGER-VERLAG. MANN, V. A. (1986). PHONOLOGICAL AWARENESS: THE ROLE OF READING EXPERIENCE. COGNITION, 24, 65-92.

BOTH OF THE STUDIES FOUND THAT JAPANESE CHILDREN CAN SEGMENT INTOSYLLABLES AND NOT PHONEMES AS A RESULT OF THEIR SYLLABLE-BASED WRITING SYSTEM.

PHONEME MONITORING STUDIES

OOIJEN, B. VAN, CUTLER, A. & NORRIS, D. (1992). DETECTION OF VOWELS AND CONSONANTS WITH MINIMAL ACOUSTIC VARIATION. SPEECH COMMUNICATION, 11, 101-108 (IN ENGLISH)

AUTHORS FOUND THAT WORDS SUCH AS MUSIC, PEW, FUSE ([MUUZIK], [PJU], [FJUZ]), WHICH INCLUDE PHONEMES WITH NO REFLECTION IN THE ORTHOGRAPHY ARE OFTEN MISSED.

CUTLER, A., OOIJEN, B. VAN, NORRIS, D. & SANCHEZ-CASAS, R. (1996). SPEEDED DETECTION OF VOWELS: A CROSS-LINGUISTIC STUDY. PERCEPTION & PSYCHOPHYSICS, 58, 807-822.

THIS STUDY SHOWED EVIDENCE THAT SCHWA IS MUCH HARDER TO DETECT THAN FULL VOWELS.

CUTLER, A., TREIMAN, R. & OOIJEN, B. VAN (1998). ORTHOGRAFIK INKONCISTENSY EPHEKTS IN FONEME DETEKTION? PROCEEDINGS OF THE FIFTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SPOKEN LANGUAGE PROCESSING, SYDNEY, DECEMBER; VOL. 6, PP. 2783-2786.

THE AUTHORS FOUND THAT ORTHOGRAPHIC CONSISTENCY IN ENGLISH HAD NO EFFECT IN PHONEME MONITORING WHETHER THE TARGET SOUND WAS CONSISTENT OR NOT (E.G., [B] ALWAYS WRITTEN AS B OR NOT, [F] WRITTEN AS F OR PH) EXCEPT ONLY WHEN THE DISTRACTORS WERE FILLED WITH MANY UNUSUALLY SPELLED WORDS.
