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.

Query:   HI ALL--

I'M TRYING TO COMPILE INFORMATION ON LANGUAGES THAT ALLOW TWO-MEMBER FRICATIVE-INITIAL CONSONANT CLUSTERS IN WORD-INITIAL POSITION. SPECIFICALLY, I'M INTERESTED IN CASES WHERE THE FRICATIVES ARE SOMETHING OTHER THAN /S/ THAT COMBINE WITH NASALS AND OBSTRUENTS.

ANY INFORMATION WOULD BE HELPFUL, EVEN IF IT'S JUST THE NAME OF A LANGUAGE, BUT I WOULD BE VERY APPRECIATIVE IF YOU HAVE INNFORMATION REGARDING WHICH PARTICULAR CLUSTERS ARE ALLOWED IN THE LANGUAGE.

THANKS,
LISA DAVIDSON
