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:

Few topics of scientific enquiry have attracted more attention in the last
decade than the origin and evolution of language. Few have offered an
equivalent intellectual challenge for interdisciplinary collaborations
between linguistics, cognitive science, prehistoric archaeology,
palaeoanthropology, genetics, neurophysiology, computer science and
robotics. The contributions presented in this volume reflect the
multiplicity of interests and research strategy used to tackle this complex
issue, summarize new relevant data and emerging theories, provide an
updated view of this interdisciplinary venture, and, when possible, seek a
future in this broad field of study.
