Contexts of accommodation : developments in applied sociolinguistics by Howard Giles( Book )

24 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theory of accommodation is concerned with motivations underlying and consequences arising from ways in which we adapt our language and communication patterns toward others. Since accommodation theory's emergence in the early l970s, it has attracted empirical attention across many disciplines and has been elaborated and expanded many times. In Contexts of Accommodation, accommodation theory is presented as a basis for sociolinguistic explanation, and it is the applied perspective that predominates this edited collection. The book seeks to demonstrate how the core concepts and relationships invoked by accommodation theory are available for addressing altogether pragmatic concerns. Accommodative processes can, for example, facilitate or impede language learners' proficiency in a second language as well as immigrants' acceptance into certain host communities; affect audience ratings and thereby the life of a television program; affect reaction to defendants in court and hence the nature of the judicial outcome; and be an enabling or detrimental force in allowing handicapped people to fulfil their communicative potential. Contexts of Accommodation will appeal to researchers and advanced students in language and communication sciences, as well as to sociolinguists, anthropologists, sociologists and psychologists

The New handbook of language and social psychology by Howard Giles( Book )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What makes a good argument? How is language used to create social influence? How social is computer-mediated communication? This new, fully updated and revised The New Handbook of Language and Social Psychology reflects the increasingly diverse range of linguistic topics that social psychologists have investigated over the decade since the previous edition of this seminal work was published. Whilst the basic organization of the text remains the same, explanatory frameworks are accorded greater prominence than before and persons are seen as agents of communicative interaction rather than as victims of external of forces. Processes and actions are highlighted, i.e. how people do what they do and how they manage the discourse. In the final section, several applied topics reflect our changing lifestyle: computer-mediated communication, mass media, and organizations. The New Handbook of Language and Social Psychology is an essential source book for all psychologists concerned with language and how it functions in human communication. Those interested in interpersonal and intergroup social relations will find much relevance, as will practitioners and other professionals working in health and welfare, multilingual contexts, and organizations
Intergroup communication : multiple perspectives( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Intergroup Communication: Multiple Perspectives contributors address the key themes in intergroup communication and describe the way communication processes relate to different cultures, gender and sexuality, disability, linguistic issues, and age groups. The chapters examine the important role that intergroup processes play in interpersonal, small group, organizational, and mass communication. This book also considers the impact of new technologies on communication. Intergroup Communication will be invaluable for scholars in the areas of communication and intergroup social psychology and is suited for upper-division undergraduate and introductory graduate courses in those areas."--Jacket

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Law enforcement, communication, and community( Book )

11 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Given widespread media attention to issues of crime and its prevention, police heroism, and new modes of police-community involvements, this international collection is timely. It is unique in examining ways in which police and citizens communicate across a range of contexts and problem areas. While much attention is afforded the critical roles of communication by police agencies, there has been little recourse to communication science and its theories. Likewise, the latter has not, until recently, concerned itself with analyzing police-citizen interactions. This volume examines the character
The handbook of intergroup communication( Book )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Handbook of Intergroup Communication brings together research, theory and application on traditional as well as innovative intergroup situations, exploring the communication aspect of these groups. The volume is organzied into four domains - cross-disciplinary approaches to intergroup study; types/processes of communication between groups; communication between specific group types; and arenas in which intergroup communication takes place. Editor Howard Giles worked with an internationally-based advisory board to develop and review content, and the contributors included here represent those scholars doing innovative and well-regarded work around the globe. The "intergroup" umbrella integrates and transcends many traditional conceptual boundaries in communication (including media, health, intercultural, organizational); hence the Handbook will appeal to scholars and graduate students not only in the core area of intergroup communication itself, but across varying terrains of study in communication and beyond, including intergroup relations and social psychology
