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.

Title: Multilingual Identities in a Global City
Written By: David Block
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403939640
Series Title: Language and Globalisation
Description:

Opening with a discussion of the key issues of globalization, migration,
multiculturalism, multilingualism and global cities, David Block then turns
to four detailed case studies: East Asian students living and working in
London; foreign language teachers from France; London's growing Latino
community; and second generation South Asian university students. Via these
case studies the book explores the ambivalent and multi-layered identities
of individuals who have crossed geographical and psychological borders
during the course of their lifetimes and settled in London, the
quintessential global city.
