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: (Re-)Locating TESOL in an Age of Empire
Edited By: Julian Edge
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403985308
Description:

Are TESOL professionals now fairly seen as agents of a new English-
speaking empire? Or, if they wish to distance themselves from this role,
are there ways of working and living that would make this differentiation
clear? An international group of authors put forward their differing
proposals for the development of TESOL in a world where military invasion
and occupation have been added to the previous mix of globalized economic
hegemony and cultural influence exercised by the USA and its allies.
