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: A Grammar of Old Turkic
Written By: Marcel Erdal
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=9277
Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 8: Uralic & Central Asian Studies
Description:

Old Turkic is the earliest, directly attested Turkic language. This
original work describes the grammar of Old Turkic. The language is
documented in inscriptions in the runic script in Mongolia and the Yenisey
basin, from the seventh to the tenth century; in Uygur manuscripts from
Chinese Turkestan in Uygur, and in runic and other scripts (comprising
religious - mostly Buddhist - legal, literary, medical, folkloric,
astrological and personal material), from the ninth to the thirteenth
century; and in eleventh-century Qarakhanid texts, mostly in Arabic
writing. All aspects of Old Turkic are dealt with: phonology, subphonemic
phenomena and morphophonology, and the way these are reflected in the
various scripts, derivational and inflectional morphology, grammatical
categories, word classes, syntax, textual and extra-textual reference and
other means of coherence, lexical fields, discourse types, phraseology as
well as stylistic, dialect and diachronic variation.
