Structuring the Concept of Relational Communication.
Dillard, James Price; Solomon, Denise Haunani; Palmer, Mark T.
Communication Monographs, v66 n1 p49-65 Mar 1999
Offers a theoretical structure for concepts within relational communication. Distinguishes between substantive variables and intensifier variables. Argues that relational judgments are hieratically organized such that dominance and affiliation subsume the more specific facets of relational communication. Shows that involvement was positively related to both dominance and affiliation irrespective of context, but the magnitude varied with salience of the relational frame. (SR)
