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: Stylistic Use of Phraseological Units in Discourse
Written By: Anita Naciscione
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=Z%20159
Description:

This interdisciplinary study presents the cutting-edge state of theoretical
and applied research in the fascinating field of phraseology. The author
elaborates key terminology and theoretical concepts of phraseology, while
challenging some prevailing assumptions. Exploration of phraseological
meaning across sentence boundaries is supported by ample textual
illustrations of stylistic use ranging from Old English to Modern English.
The book contains innovative research in the discourse-level features of
phraseological units from a cognitive perspective, along with creative use
of phraseological metaphor, metonymy and allusion, multimodal discourse
included. The author argues for applied stylistics as a distinct area and
the need to raise stylistic awareness among teachers and learners,
translators, lexicographers and advertisers. The book offers an extensive
glossary of key terms and a comprehensive bibliography.

Stylistic Use of Phraseological Units in Discourse is a skilfully revised and
extensively expanded new edition of the author’s previously published
'Phraseological Units in Discourse: Towards Applied Stylistics' (2001).
