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: The Rise of Functional Categories
Written By: Elly van Gelderen
Description:

In recent years, within the GB/Minimalist framework and in Universal Grammar, word order has become viewed as determined by functional as well as lexical categories. This work argues that language learners must decide whether to incorporate categories into their grammar and that the availability of categories varies from language to language.
