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.

Summary:   DEAR LINGUIST,

AS ALWAYS, I'M AMAZED BY THE GENEROSITY OF LINGUISTS IN GENERAL AND
THOSE NAMED BELOW IN PARTICULAR; IN RESPONSE TO MY GLOBAL
APPEAL (LINGUIST 10.1459.3), I RECEIVED A GREAT DEAL OF USEFUL
INFORMATION FROM MANY VERY BUSY PEOPLE. IN PARTICULAR, THANKS TO TOVA
ROPOPORT, DAVID STRINGER AND ANDREW MCINTYRE FOR LONG, THOUGHTFUL
RESPONSES AND IN THE FORMER TWO CASES, ENTIRE READING LISTS FOR
COURSES THEY'VE RUN. CHILIN SHIH POINTS ME TO BHUVANA NARASIMHAN'S
DISSERTATION AS A GOOD SOURCE FOR LEXICAL-SEMANTIC DISCUSSION OF A
LANGUAGE OTHER THAN ENGLISH (IN THIS CASE, HINDI). OTHERWISE THERE'S
NOT MUCH OBVIOUSLY NON-ENGLISH STUFF ON THE LIST. BELOW I GIVE THE
REFERENCES TO THE DISSERTATIONS, BOOKS AND ARTICLES THAT WERE
SUGGESTED TO ME, ALPHABETIZED. THERE ARE A COUPPLE OF READINGS I'M
CONSIDERING INCLUDING THAT WERE NOT AMONG THOSE SUGGESTED; IN A WEEK
OR TWO I SHOULD HAVE MY PRELIMINARY SYLLABUS TOGETHER AND I'LL BE
HAPPY TO EMAIL THAT TO ANYONE WHO'S INTERESTED, JUST SEND ME A
NOTE. (THOSE WHO'VE ALREADY ASKED ME DON'T NEED TO DO SO AGAIN, AT
LEAST, IF I'VE GOT MY ACT TOGETHER THE WAY I THINK I HAVE YOU DON'T).

THANKS TO:
