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: Discourse Analysis
Written By: Barbara Johnstone
Description:

Discourse Analysis is an ideal textbook for students taking a first course in linguistic approaches to discourse. It presupposes no previous coursework in linguistics. It is designed to encourage students to think about discourse analysis as an open-ended heuristic, a set of techniques for systematically studying every possible source of the meaning of a sequence of speech or writing.
Chapters cover the complex relationships between discourse and various aspects of context, such as linguistic structure, participants and prior discourse. Discussion questions and ideas for small research projects are interspersed throughout. Each chapter ends with a set of suggested supplementary readings. Clearly written, accessible, up to date, and comprehensive, Discourse Analysis is useful for teachers and students in many disciplines.
