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.

Abstract: This paper is a review of Abutalebi et al. (http://www.jneurosci.org/cgi/content/full/27/50/13762). This study is particularly worth highlighting as it could potentially have major implications for models of bilingual comprehension and speaks to the question of what the neuronal correlates of perceiving language switches may be. Our review also emphasizes our concern surrounding the contrast between "regular" and "irregular" language switches and a frank assessment of why we feel these particular findings should be interpreted with caution.
