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: An Introduction to Classical Hebrew
Written By: D. Vance
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=18092
Description:

This grammar introduces undergraduate and graduate students to the
essentials of classical Hebrew. It begins with the simple and regular
elements of the language and proceeds to the complex and irregular,
frequently referencing the historical development of Hebrew. Extensive
explanations of elements in English prepare students for the discussion of
the corresponding Hebrew element. Through the course of the text, the
reader will translate the book of Ruth as well as other biblical and
nonbiblical texts, learning particular skills in reading both the entire
Hebrew Bible and the later sixth-century Hebrew material, such as the
Lachish Letter. Accomplished students of this text will be prepared to
progress to advanced study of Hebrew grammar and exegesis of the Hebrew Bible.
