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: Argument Encoding in Japanese Conversation
Written By: Mitsuaki Shimojo
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403937052
Description:

Japanese is well known for its array of argument encoding types - but how
is speakers' choice of encoding types to be described? This book
investigates the encoding of subject and direct object in conversational
Japanese and attempts to explain Japanese argument encoding as a unified
system. Qualitative and quantitative analyses of a bank of conversation are
provided, with the emphasis on speakers' use of the encoding types rather
than their acceptability for given arguments.
