Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

Journal of Language Aggression and Conflict

Call Deadline: 31-Dec-2013

Call Information:
Language studies have for years tended to concentrate on the analysis of harmonious interactions. However, more recently, the study of acrimonious interaction has started gathering momentum.
