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.


Scottish Language

Call Deadline: 31-Oct-2014

Call Information:
Scottish Language, the premier refereed journal on language in Scotland, is looking for articles for publication in its next volume, to be published in Spring 2015. While most articles have, in the past, been concerned with Scots, Gaelic and Scottish Standard English, work on any languages spoken, written or signed in Scotland -- including the Northern Isles -- is most welcome. Historical and synchronic perspectives are equally welcome, as are any theoretical approaches, including those concerned with the use of language in literary contexts. Essays on Ulster Scots will also be considered, as will comparisons between a Scottish language and those spoken elsewhere in the world.

Further information on the journal, including a style sheet, can be found at
http://www.arts.gla.ac.uk/scotlit/asls/ScotLang.html

In the first instance, I would be grateful for submissions for next year's volume by 31 October 2014. Informal queries and proposals can be sent to the Editor, Robert McColl Millar, on r.millar@abdn.ac.uk.
