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 is a simple introduction to Old English for students with little or no

English focuses on the explanation and demonstration of how the language

stage of the language. It also includes long extracts from popular Old
English works for use in the classroom.
