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: Using Russian
Subtitle: A Guide to Contemporary Usage, Second Edition
Written By: Derek C Offord
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521547611
Description:

Using Russian is a guide to Russian usage for those who have already
acquired the basics of the language and wish to extend their knowledge.
Unlike conventional grammars, it gives special attention to those areas of
vocabulary and grammar which cause most difficulty to English speakers, and
focuses on questions of style and register which are all too often ignored.
Clear, readable and easy to consult, it will prove invaluable to students
seeking to improve their fluency and confidence in Russian. This second
edition has been substantially revised and expanded to incorporate fresh
material and up-to-date information. Many of the original chapters have
been rewritten and one brand new chapter has been added, providing a clear
picture of Russian usage in the 21st century.

"...contains a greater wealth of information...highly recommended for
collections serving teachers, translators and graduate students of
Russian." --B.K. Beynen, Choice
