Communication rules: theory and research
Brings a fresh perspective to communication research by constructing a theory of communication based on the use of rules for manipulating symbols. Shimanoff answers such questions as: how can rules be inferred from behaviour? What relationships are there between rules and behaviour? What are the best methods to approach rules research? How can rules research contribute to communication theory?
