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."

Description:

A serial verb construction (sometimes just called serial verb) is a
sequence of verbs which acts together as one. This oustanding book is the
first to study the phenomenon across languages of different typological and
genetic profiles. The authors, all experienced linguistic fieldworkers,
follow a unified typological approach and avoid formalisms. The book will
interest students, at graduate level and above, of syntax, typology,
language universals, information structure, and language contact, in
departments of linguistics and anthroplogy.
