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: This is a review of two books, Lycan (2001) written from a philosophical perspective, and Dancygier & Sweetser (2005) written from a Cognitive Linguistic perspective. Despite sharing many concerns and approaches, there is hardly any overlap in the bibliographies of the two books, reflecting an unfortunate level of academic compartmentalism.
