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: Indogermanische Grammatik (Volume 6)
Written By: Hermann Alfred Hirt
Description:

Hermann Alfred Hirt (1865–1936) taught Greek, Latin and early Germanic
languages at Leipzig University from 1892 to 1912 before moving to the
chair of Sanskrit and comparative linguistics at Giessen. Born around the
time when Bopp and Schleicher were publishing their ground-breaking work on
Indo-European, and a young man when Brugmann published his monumental
comparative grammar (all available in this series), Hirt began this
seven-volume grammar in the 1920s soon after the exciting discovery of
Tocharian and the decipherment of Hittite. The project arose out of his
extensive research on the historical phonology of Indo-European vowels,
which led him to consider much wider issues. Volume 6 (1934) is the first
of two devoted to syntax, and focuses on the origins and syntactic
functions of case, tense and mood.
