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.

THANKS FOR THE FOLLOWING REPLIES:

DICK HUDSON:

CUP HAVE JUST PRODUCED A VERY BRIGHT AND (WE THINK) NICE POSTER FOR
LINGUISTICS. IT'S JUST ROLLED OFF THE PRESS, AND YOUR DEPT SHOULD BE
GETTING A COPY SOON (AT LEAST, IT WILL IF THERE'S ANYONE THERE IN THE
LAGB). IF YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE, SEND A MESSAGE TO EMMA BAXTER, THE
CUP EDITOR WHO HAS BEEN LOOKING AFTER THIS PROJECT -
EBAXTER@CUP.CAM.AC.UK.

GARY HOLTON:

THE ANLC USED TO HAVE A NICE LINGUISTIC MAP OF ALASKA.
THE ALASKA NATIVE LANGUAGE CENTER NOW HAS A NEW WEBSITE AT
HTTP://WWW.UAF.EDU/ANLC

THE SITE INCLUDES AN ONLINE VERSION OF THE ANLC PUBLICATIONS
CATALOG, AS WELL AS BRIEF INFORMATION ABOUT EACH OF ALASKA'S 20
NATIVE LANGUAGES.

DEBORAH D K RUUSKANEN:

NOT ALWAYS LANGUAGE RELATED, BUT LOVELLY PICTURES - AND SOMETIMES MAPS
- CAN BE HAD FOR FREE FROM TOURIST BUREAUS, I MEAN THE TOURIST
INFORMATION SERVICES OF THE VARIOUS US STATES, AND CLOSER TO YOU
PERHAPS, SCOTLAND AND WALES. IRELAND, TOO - AND MAYBE EVEN
ENGLAND. EACH US STATE MAINTAINS A WEB PAGE WITH AN EMAIL ADDRESS - I
WROTE TO THEM SNAILMAIL AND EXPLAINED WHAT I WANTED AND WHY, AND WAS
POSITIVELY INUNDATED WITH SUPER POSTERS. MY FAVOURITES WERE THE
SCOTTISH CASTLES AND THE TEXAS WILDFLOWERS - COMPLETE WITH BOTH COMMON
(US ENGLISH) AND LATIN NAMES.
