Coupland, and J. Coupland The explanatory value of this more propositionally and functionally based specification of CAT is only now beginning to be demonstrated, with the chapters (in this volume) by Ferrara, Hamilton, and Linell being important instances. The theoretical necessity for this expanded perspective is, however, already clear. Accommodative or attuned talk is frequently achieved strategically when behavior matching, participant to participant, is either not the evaluatively salient criterion or is highly inappropriate.

Communication, context, and consequence 41 Here CAT processes are linked explicitly to social support, health concerns, and health outcomes - an area to which we turn shortly. For the moment, however, we note that the addressee focus in the previous discussion has centered on the other's communicative patterns, or, rather, on perceptions or expectations of the other's communicative performance.
