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: Language, Nation and Power
Written By: Robert McColl Millar
Description:

Language, Nation and Power provides students with a discussion of the ways
in which language has been (and is being) used to construct national (or
ethnic) identity. It focuses on the processes by which a language can be
planned and standardized and what the results of these processes are.
Particular emphasis is given to the historical and social effects which
nationalism has had on the development of language since the French
Revolution. For students of linguistics, sociology and politics.
