About the book:

This work accounts for the influence mutually intelligible dialects of a language have on one another when they come into contact. It examines linguisitic accommodation in face-to-face interaction and treats this phenomenon as crucial to an understanding of longer-term phenomena such as the geographical spread of linguistic features, the development of "interdialect" and the growth of new dialects.
