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.

Title: From Linguistics to Hermeneutics
Subtitle: A Functional and Cognitive Approach to Job 12-14
Written By: Pierre Van Hecke
Series Title: Studia Semitica Neerlandica
Description:

Linguistics and hermeneutics are often regarded as two mutually exclusive
scholarly disciplines. Recent decades, however, have witnessed the rise of
linguistic approaches that take meaning back to the heart of their inquiry
and can be fruitful for textual interpretation. This book applies the
insights of two such approaches, i.e. functional grammar and cognitive
semantics, to the study of Biblical Hebrew with a specific focus on Job
12-14. The result is two-fold. The study offers a detailed linguistic
analysis, providing many new insights in the linguistic peculiarities of
the text and Biblical Hebrew in general. Moreover, it proposes a fresh
exegetical reading of Job’s longest and central speech in the book.
