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:   FOR QUERY: 12.561

I WISH TO THANK THOSE WHO RESPONDED TO MY QUERY INTO DOCUMENTATION OF ELLIPSIS IN LANGUAGE. I WISH TO THANK TIL TURNER WHO SUGGESTED ENGLISH GRAMMAR BY RODNEY HUEELESON. ON PAGES 204-5 HE DEFINES TWO TYPES OF ELLIPSIS: *BOUND* AND *FREE* WITH EXAMPLES OF BOTH.

MY GRATITUDE TO PETER MENZEL WHO MADE SEVERAL SUGGESTIONS ON CLARIFYING THE ISSUE./LL/
THANKS ALSO TO KEVIN JOHNSON WHO OFFERED SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO BETTER DEFINE THE TOPIC SINCE IT MAY BE THOUGHT TO BE WIDER THAN I THOUGHT IT MAY BE.

I LOCATED A DISSERTATION BY BERNHARD SCHWARZ TITLED TOPICS IN ELLIPSIS. HE DISCUSSES THE SUBJECT FOR BOTH ENGLISH AND GERMAN.

FINALLY, I NOTICED A JOB POSTING BY MICROSOFT FOR SUMMER INTERN ON THE SAME SUBJECT.
