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:   I POSTED A QUERY ASKING IF ANYONE KNEW HOW TO SET LINGER (SELF-PACED
READING, ROHDE, 2001), SO IT RUNS IN KOREAN. I RECEIVED ONE RESPONSE FROM
KIND ANDREW KONG (THANKS TO YOU!). THE MESSAGES IS AS FOLLOWS.

*CJK (CHINESE, JAPANESE AND KOREAN) ARE OFTEN GROUPED TOGETHER BY COMPUTER
SCIENTISTS/ENGINEERS, AS THEY INVOLVE THE USE OF DOUBLE-BYTES CHARACTERS
(CF. ENGLISH WITH ITS USE OF ASCII CHARACTERS ONLY), SO THEY COULD OFTEN BE
TREATED SIMILARLY (I.E. THE CHANCE IS LINGER *SHOULD* WORK FOR KOREAN AS
WELL).

*THE PROBLEM IS USUALLY WITH THE ''ENCODING'' (AND/OR ''DECODING'') OF THE
DOUBLE-BYTE CHARACTERS (WHICH CAN BE DONE IN WORD).

*YOU SHOULD EXPERIMENT WITH A SMALL KOREAN FILE BY ADAPTING WHAT IS FOR
CHINESE (''ENCODING'' & ''FONT'') ON THIS PAGE TO WHAT IS FOR KOREAN
INSTEAD (BEING A ''KIM'', YOU ARE PROBABLY A KOREAN SPEAKER/WRITER, THEN
YOU SHOULD KNOW OR YOU COULD FIND THE CORRESPONDING INFO FOR KOR FROM WORD)
AND SEE IF IT WORKS FIRST.

WITH A NUMBER OFATTEMPTS TO MODIFY THE PREFERENCE FILE IN THE PROGRAM,
DAVID LI (AT USC IN LA), FINALLY MADE IT WORK. THE ENCODING NEEDED TO BE
PUT IN FOR KOREAN WAS ''EUC-KR''. THERE ARE OTHER SMALL DETAILS TO BE TAKEN
CARE OF. IF ANYONE NEEDS ASSISTANT, I'LL BE HAPPY TO HELP.
