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: Bilingualism
Subtitle: The Sociopragmatic-Psycholinguistic Interface
Written By: Joel Walters
Description:

In the past 30 years, the study of bilingualism processing has been
conducted independently by two fields, psycholinguistics and
sociolinguistics. This volume merges these two fields, addressing one of
the tough problems dividing researchers in bilingualism, conceptually as
well as methodologically. Joel Walters proposes a new approach to
bilingualism processing --the Sociopragmatic-Psycholinguistic (SPPL)
Model--which presents language as a social phenomenon. The author
accomplishes this by identifying and organizing evidence from a wide range
of linguistic disciplines, merging sociopragmatics, discourse analysis and
ethnography with social cognition, psycholinguistics and neuroscience. By
extension, the author offers convincing explanations of how related fields
can profit from a comprehensive bilingual processing model. As a result,
Joel Walters delivers a well-organized, comprehensive model that is thought
through at every level.

This book will be of interest to graduate students, scholars in the fields
of linguistics, bilingualism, second language acquisition,
psycholinguistics and sociolinguistics. It will be useful for researchers
for its comprehensiveness and methodological acumen and may be appropriate
as a supplementary textbook for graduate level courses in bilingualism or
for seminars on similar topics.
