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."

Series Title: Corpus and Discourse
Description:

Corpus linguistics is often regarded as a methodology in its own right, but
little attention has been given to the theoretical perspectives from which
the subject can be approached. The present book contributes to filling this
gap. Bringing together original contributions by internationally renowned
authors, the chapters include coverage of the lexical priming theory,
parole-linguistics, a four-part model of language system and language use,
and the concept of local textual functions. The theoretical arguments are
illustrated and complemented by case studies using data from large corpora
such as the BNC, smaller purpose-built corpora, and Google searches.

By presenting theoretical positions in corpus linguistics, 'Text,
Discourse, and Corpora' provides an essential overview for advanced
undergraduate, postgraduate and academic readers.

'An outstanding book, containing a range of original research ideas and
insights that push cogently and systematically at the boundaries of the
subject.'
-Professor Ronald Carter, School of English Studies, University of
Nottingham, UK
