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: The Intonation of Castilian Spanish Declaratives and Absolute Interrogatives
Written By: Timothy L Face
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Phonetics 02
Description:

The Intonation of Castilian Spanish Declaratives and Absolute
Interrogatives sets out to provide the most complete description of the
intonation patterns of Castilian Spanish declaratives and absolute
interrogatives that has been presented to date. Speech production data is
compiled and examined to determine the physical characteristics of the
intonation patterns of these sentence types in both broad focus and in
narrow focus contexts, allowing for as complete an understanding of the
intonation patterns presented by declaratives and absolute interrogatives
as is currently possible.

Speech perception data is also presented in order to address the
differences between the intonation patterns of declaratives and absolute
interrogatives from the perspective of the listener, showing the degree to
which each of these differences is meaningful in communication. While the
primary goal of the book is to present a solid description of the
intonation patterns, the implications of the data for any potential
phonological analysis of the intonation patterns are also considered.
