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 is the first issue of Language in Society to go to press under my editorship, though most of the contents of this issue were edited by Jane Hill. I would like to thank Professor Hill for making the editorial transition as smooth as it has been. She has been ready to help and advise at a moment's notice. Readers of the journal, too, owe Professor Hill an enormous debt of gratitude for her work as editor. I hope that Language in Society will continue to be as interesting and up to date during my tenure, but Jane Hill will be a hard act to follow.
