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:

Languages, in all their forms, are the more efficient and natural means for
people to communicate. Enormous quantities of information are produced,
distributed and consumed using languages. Human language technology's main
purpose is to allow the use of automatic systems and tools to assist humans
in producing and accessing information, to improve communication between
humans, and to assist humans in communicating with machines. This book,
sponsored by the Directorate General XIII of the European Union and the
Information Science and Engineering Directorate of the National Science
Foundation, USA, offers the first comprehensive overview of the human
language technology field.
