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: Investigating English Legal Genres in Academic and Professional Contexts
Written By: Girolamo Tessuto
Description:

This volume contributes to the latest studies in legal discourse studies by presenting a descriptive and interpretive analysis of English legal genres used in academic and professional writing contexts. The results of corpora-driven data are discussed through (meta)discourse, genre and other theoretical perspectives, and offer insights into the ways the writers’ discursive practices and meanings shape their membership to the legal community and discipline. The volume attempts to show these ideas in systematic and clear language, and is designed for native and non-native readers whether involved in English applied linguistic research or disciplinary English writing instruction.
