Bringing together evidence from natural and social sciences, the work introduces the non-reductionist Instruction Grammar programme.

Discourse-Pragmatic Variation and Change in English: New Methods and Insights by Heike Pichler

English | 2016 | ISBN: 1107055768 | 324 pages | PDF | 2,4 MB

This volume brings together key players in discourse variation research to offer original analyses of a wide range of discourse-pragmatic variables, such as ‘like’, ‘innit’, ‘you get me’, and ‘at the end of the day’. The authors introduce a range of new methods specifically tailored to the study of discourse-pragmatic variation and change in synchronic and longitudinal dialect data, and provide new empirical and theoretical insights into discourse-pragmatic variation and change in contemporary varieties of English. The volume thus enhances our understanding of the complexities of discourse-pragmatic variation and change, and encourages new ways of thinking about variability in discourse-pragmatics. With its dual focus on presenting innovative methods as well as new results, the volume will provide an important resource for both newcomers and veterans alike in the field of discourse variation analysis, and spark discussions that will set new directions for future work in the field.

Communication Accommodation Theory: Negotiating Personal Relationships and Social Identities across Contexts by Howard Giles

English | 2016 | ISBN: 110710582X | 230 pages | PDF | 1,2 MB

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.
