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.

Summary:   DEAR COLLEAGUE,
I RECENTLY POSTED A QUERY ABOUT RESEARCH EVIDENCE AS TO WHETHER OR NOT
FORMAL GRAMMAR TEACHING CAN IMPROVE WRITING SKILLS. A NUMBER OF PEOPLE
PROVIDED HELPFUL LEADS, AND I'VE NOW BUILT A BIBLIOGRAPHY WHICH I'VE
INCLUDED IN A SHORT REVIEW OF THE EVIDENCE. THIS IS AVAILABLE FOR
DOWNLOADING FROM HTTP://WWW.PHON.UCL.AC.UK/HOME/DICK/PAPERS.HTM , BUT I'LL
BE GLAD TO SEND AN ELECTRONIC COPYY (AS AN ATTACHMENT), OR EVEN PAPER.
THE BIBLIOGRAPHY NOW INCLUDES SOME RESEARCH FROM OUTSIDE THE
ENGLISH-SPEAKING WORLD, BUT NOT MUCH, SO I'D WELCOME FURTHER SUGGESTIONS.
