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: Spoken English, TESOL and Applied Linguistics
Subtitle: Challenges for Theory and Practice
Edited By: Rebecca Hughes
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=305766
Description:

'...the book provides a set of accessible, issues-driven discussions of the
"state of the art" in spoken language research and practice. It thus has
something to offer researchers and practitioners working in a wide range of
professional contexts.' - The Linguist

A collection of cutting-edge studies on spoken language and applied
linguistics provided by leading scholars in the field, this volume combines
lively, and at times challenging, theoretical debates with discussion of a
more classroom-based nature. It takes the reader through questions of
international English, ideology and attitudes to the spoken form, issues of
prosody and conversational norms, spoken language in the ELT classroom and
key questions in assessing the spoken form.
