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."

Abstract: The present study intends to investigate some important and fundamental structures in a typical conversation from an analytical perspective. Thanks to the significance behind the emergence of conversation analysis (CA) and its typical definition, the researcher attempts to empirically and practically consult live data out of an 11-minute talk-in-interaction so as to both identify basic structures in the encounter and accordingly back specific-ordered and systematic structures and notions maintained by CA hypothetically. In doing so, to conduct the analysis of some significant and central structures of the conversation, the researcher zeroes in on four structures and concepts, i.e. turn-taking, overlap, repair and discourse markers.
