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:   HI - I POSTED A QUERY A WHILE AGO ABOUT HOW NON-ENGLISH NAMES
GET ANGLICIZED. WHAT I GOT IN RESPONSE WAS QUITE INTERESTING, THOUGH
MOST OF IT WAS ANECDOTAL, AS THE RESPONDERS THEMSELVES NOTED. MOST OF
THE RESEARCH CITED WAS NOT IN SOCIOLINGUISTICS BUT IN SPEECH
TECHNOLOGY.
I STILL THINK THIS WOULD BE AN INTERESTING TOPIC TO WORK ON. IN ANY
CASE, I'M INCLUDINNG THE RESPONSES I GOT, WITH THANKS TO ALL AND
APOLOGIES FOR THE TYPOGRAPHICAL IRREGULARITIES -
