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: Sociolinguistic Theory: Linguistic Variation and Its Social Significance
Subtitle: Second Edition
Written By: J. K. Chambers
Series Title: Language in Society
Description:

*NEW EDITION*
Since the inception of sociolinguistics more than three decades ago, the correlation of dependent linguistic variables with independent social variables has provided the theoretical core of the discipline.
Chambers reviews the essential findings of Henrietta
Cedegren, William Labov, Lesley Milroy and James
Milroy, David Sankoff, Gillian Sankoff, Peter Trudgill,
Walt Wolfram, and many others, and puts them into context both with the work of the numerous linguists who have followed their lead and with their intellectual forbears from Wilhelm von Humboldt and Louis
Gauchat to Edward Sapir.
