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: Language, Citizenship and Identity in Quebec
Written By: Leigh Oakes
Jane Warren
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/newsearch/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403949751
Series Title: Language and Globalization
Description:

Globalization is calling for new conceptualizations of belonging within
culturally diverse communities. This book takes Quebec as a case study and
examines how it fosters a sense of belonging through a common citizenship
with French as the key element. As a nation without a state, Quebec is
driven by two distinct imperatives: the need to affirm a robust Francophone
identity within Anglophone North America, and the civic obligation to
accommodate an increasingly diverse range of migrant groups, as well as
demands for recognition by Aboriginal and Anglophone minorities.
