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."

This accessible textbook analyzes some central phenomena of the sound

articulatory phonetics and the more abstract phonological systems to word
stress and intonation. The target readership includes both students and
teachers of English and linguistics.


Key features:
* an accessible introduction to both English phonology and phonology in
general - suitable for beginners in the field

and other languages with the tools of Cognitive Linguistics
* now available in paperback
