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 Karaite Tradition of Hebrew Grammatical Thought in its Classical Form

Series Title: Studies in Semitic Language & Linguistics
Description:

The book, consisting of two volumes, presents a critical edition and an
annotated English translation of the work on Hebrew grammar al-Kitāb
al-Kāfī fī al-Luġa al-'Ibārniyya by the medieval Karaite grammarian 'Abū
al-Faraj Hārūn Ibn Faraj. This was one of the most important works on
Hebrew grammar that was written in the Middle Ages, which, however, was
lost to knowledge for several centuries and is here recovered from medieval
manuscripts for the first time in a modern edition.

In addition to the text edition and translation, the book contains an
introduction on the background of the text and the codicology of the
manuscripts.

This publication will be of interest not only to Hebraists and Biblical
scholars but also to scholars concerned with the history of linguistic
thought and medieval thought in general.
