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:   SOME TIME AGO I ASKED A COLLEAGUE TO ASK WHETHER ANYBODY KNOWS
LITERATURE ON THE INFLUENCE OF CREAKY VOICE ON FORMANT FREQUENCIES. I
AM WORKING ON SPEAKER RECOGNITION AND THE REASON, WHY I AM INTERESTED
IN THIS QUESTION IS THAT ESPECIALLY FEMALES, WHEN THEY TRY TO DISGUISE
THEIR VOICE, USE CREAK. DURING TTHE PRODUCTION OF CREAK IT MIGHT BE THE
CASE THAT THE LARYNX IS LOWERED (I PERSONALLY DO THIS), SO THIS WOULD
CREATE AN EFFECT ON FORMANT FREQUENCIES.
