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: Why There Are No Clitics
Written By: Daniel L. Everett
Series Title: Publications in Linguistics #123
Description:

The author argues for the thesis that pronominal clitics, pronouns, and pronominal affixes are allomorphs of one another, derived from lexical storage of individual grammatical features, e.g., person number, and gender, which are then "spelled-out" as pronouns, affixes, or clitics, depending on how they are stacked, as well as how they are inserted. This study thus crucially assumes a separationist theory of morphology, wehre phonological realization and lexical insertion are separate steps.

Dr. Daniel L. Everett has carried out field research on various Amazonian languages. Served as Chair of the Department of Linguistics at the University of Pittsburgh.
