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."


Book Information

   

Title: Logic, Language and Computation
Edited By: Jerry Seligman
Dag Westerståhl
Description:

The fields of logic, linguistics and computer science are intimately related, and modern research has uncovered a wide range of connections. This collection focuses on the work that is based on the unifying concept of information. Some of the papers contribute to a general theory of information, others tackle specific problems using an information-based approach. All the papers were presented at the conference on Information-based Approaches to Logic, Language and Computation held at St. Mary's College, Moraga, California in June 1994. The conference is a direct successor of three conferences on Situation Theory and its Applications.
