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: Studies in Very Large Corpora
Edited By: K Church
D Yarowsky
Pierre Isabelle
Series Title: Text, Speech and Language Technology
Description:

Due to the recent availability of large bodies of text and speech in electronic form, data-based research of all kinds has increased dramatically in areas such as computational linguistics and language engineering (especially corpus-based linguistics), speech, humanities computing, psycho-linguistics, and information retrieval. This series is intended to explore the methodologies and technologies that are emerging as a result of this work. In addition, while each of these disciplines has developed methodologies appropriate to its particular problem area, there is emerging a clearly defined set of technologies and methodologies common to all areas of research involving large quantities of electronic data. The series will be particularly concerned with methodologies and technologies with either actual or potantial applicability to other areas.
