Language, Literacy, and Technology

By Richard Kern

"In this book, Richard Kern explores how technology matters to language and the ways in which we use it. Kern reveals how material, social and individual resources interact in the design of textual meaning, and how that interaction plays out across contexts of communication, different situations of technological mediation, and different moments in time."

Title: The Handbook of Contemporary Semantic Theory
Edited By: Shalom Lappin
Description:

This volume provides a comprehensive view of the central issues in
contemporary semantic theory. New articles by leading researchers in the
field give an introductory account of previous work along with a
presentation of new innovations and results. Thus the Handbook is both an
authoritative guide to the major developments of linguistic semantics and a
significant contribution to the current research. The book will be
invaluable both to students requiring a complete and up-to-date survey of
work in semantics, and to the specialist engaged in research on particular
problems in semantic theory. The articles in the Handbook are written in an
accessible style and include detailed references. In addition, the volume
includes an extensive central bibliography which is intended to serve as a
research tool for students and linguists working in the field.
