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: Indo-European Linguistics
Subtitle: An Introduction
Written By: James Clackson
Description:

The Indo-European language family comprises several hundred languages and
dialects, including all of those spoken in Europe, and most of those spoken
in South, Southwest and Central Asia. Spoken by an estimated three billion
people, it has the largest number of native speakers in the world today.
This textbook provides an accessible introduction to the study of the
Indo-European languages. It clearly sets out the methods for relating the
languages to one another, presents an engaging discussion of the current
debates and controversies concerning their classification, and offers
sample problems and suggestions for how to solve them. Complete with a
comprehensive glossary, almost 100 tables in which language data and
examples are clearly laid out, suggestions for further reading, discussion
points, and a range of exercises, this text will be an essential toolkit
for all those studying historical linguistics, language typology and the
Indo-European languages for the first time.
