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."


Book Information

   

Title: Spanish Pragmatics
Written By: Rosina Márquez Reiter
María Elena Placencia
Description:

The first substantial textbook on pragmatics to focus on Spanish. The
authors discuss key theories within the Anglo-American tradition of
pragmatics, concentrating on the relationship between language use and
socio-cultural contexts, and their uptake by Hispanists. Drawing on
research by foremost scholars in the field, with reference to a wide range
of 'Spanishes', including a first treatment of 'sociopragmatic variation'.
Concepts throughout are illustrated with real language examples taken from
different Spanish corpora. The book is carefully structured to be
appropriate for upper-level undergraduates and postgraduate students.
