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: Germanic Language Histories 'from Below' (1700-2000)
Edited By: Stephan Elspaß
Nils Langer
Joachim Scharloth
Wim Vandenbussche
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/rs/bookSingle.cfm?id=IS-9783110193350-1&l=E
Series Title: Studia Linguistica Germanica 86
Description:

Focusing on the sociolinguistic history of Germanic languages, the current
volume challenges the traditional teleological approach of language
historiography. The 30 contributions present alternative histories of ten
"big" as well as "small" Germanic languages and varieties in the last 300
years. Topics covered in this book include language variation and change
and the politics of language contact and choice, seen against the
background of standardization processes of written and oral text genres and
from the viewpoint of larger sections of the population.
