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: Ignorance of Language
Written By: Michael Devitt
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199250967
Description:

The Chomskian revolution in linguistics gave rise to a new orthodoxy about
mind and language. Michael Devitt throws down a provocative challenge to
that orthodoxy. What is linguistics about? What role should linguistic
intuitions play in constructing grammars? What is innate about language? Is
there a 'language faculty'? These questions are crucial to our developing
understanding of ourselves; Michael Devitt offers refreshingly original
answers.
