Abstract:

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. Communication Accommodation
Theory (CAT), revised and elaborated over the past 40 years, has been applied
to a wide range of situations, from families to courtrooms, and from media to
hospitals, by means of diverse methodologies in many disciplines, and across
numerous languages and cultures. Bringing together a team of experts, this
book demonstrates how the theory can help us towards a greater understanding
of interpersonal communication in a multitude of contexts. Finally, it
examines the principles of the theory, identifying a range of avenues along
which research can move forward in future.
