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 compares various constructions which have been termed 'antipassive' according to a non-reductionalist and functionalist framework. 30 such constructions are included, and typologized according to the formal-functional features of each, in the context of the relevant languages' alignment systems. The paper attempts to add to knowledge on this issue, which, to date, has focused on small numbers of languages, avoiding broader typological analyses.
