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: A number of basic concepts and terms employed in discussions of metaphor will first be explained. The framework used is Max Black's (1979/1993) interaction theory, which will be complemented by other relevant studies. After the introduction of the pertinent concepts, they will be applied to some de-contextualized pictures in order to demonstrate how Black's theory can be made productive for non-verbal metaphors.
