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."


Book Information

   

Title: Political Discourse in the Media
Subtitle: Cross-cultural perspectives
Edited By: Anita Fetzer
Gerda Eva Lauerbach
Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 160
Description:

This book departs from the premise that political discourse is
intrinsically connected with media discourse, as shaped by its cultural and
transcultural characteristics. It presents a collection of papers which
examine political discourse in the media from a cross-culturally
comparative perspective in Arab, Dutch, British, Finnish, Flemish, French,
German, Israeli, Swedish, US-American and international contexts. By using
different theoretical frameworks, such as conversation analysis, discourse
analysis, pragmatics and systemic functional linguistics, the papers
reflect current moves in political discourse analysis to cross-disciplinary
and methodological boundaries by integrating semiotics, particularly
multimodality, cognition, context, genre and recipient design.
