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: Code-Switching in Conversation
Edited By: Peter Auer
Description:

Collecting contributions from a wide variety of international sociolinguistic settings in which this phenomenon of code-switching is observed, this volume addresses the structure, function and ideological value of such bilingual behavior. The contributors question many views of code-switching on the basis of many European and non-European contexts. By bringing together linguistic, anthropological and socio-psychological research, they move towards a more realistic conception of bilingual conversation.
