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: Spanish in Contact
Subtitle: Policy, Social and Linguistic Inquiries
Edited By: Kim Potowski
Richard Cameron
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=Impact%2022
Series Title: IMPACT: Studies in Language and Society 22
Description:

This volume, covering a range of topics such as Spanish as a heritage
language in the United States, policy issues, pragmatics and language
contact, sociolinguistic variation and contact, and Bozal (Creole) Spanish,
will serve the interests of linguists, educators, and policy makers alike.
It provides cutting edge research on varieties of Spanish spoken by
children, teenagers, and adults in places as diverse as Chicago, New York,
New Mexico, and Houston; Valencia and Galicia; the Andean highlands; and
the border between Haiti and the Dominican Republic. The emphasis is on
spoken Spanish, although researchers also investigate code-switching in the
lyrics of bachata songs and the presence of creole in Cuban and Brazilian
literature. This collection will be of interest wherever Spanish is spoken.
