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: Alzheimer Talk, Text, Context
Subtitle: Enhancing Communication
Edited By: Boyd H. Davis
Description:

The contributors to this volume reference a shared, longitudinal corpus of
spontaneous conversation elicited in natural settings from speakers with
moderate to late moderate Alzheimer's Disease, utilizing other collections
as appropriate, to analyze conversation, discourse and written text by and
about Alzheimer's speech. Cross-disciplinary contributions from the USA,
Canada, New Zealand and Germany, representing linguistics, gerontology,
geriatric nursing, computer science, and communications disorders report on
empirically-based investigations of social and pragmatic language
competencies and strategies retained by AD patients which could ground
communication enhancements or interventions.
