The Effects of Speech Rate Similarity on Compliance: Application of Communication Accommodation Theory.
Buller, David B.; Aune, R. Kelly
Western Journal of Communication, v56 n1 p37-53 Win 1992
Tests a communication accommodation theory explanation for the effects of college student speech rate on compliance with a request for help. Finds that speech rate similarity, though not directly related to compliance, was associated with greater intimacy, immediacy, and sociability/character interpretations; and that enhanced immediacy ratings were linked to greater compliance.
