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: English in Europe
Edited By: Manfred Görlach
URL: http://www.oup.com/us/catalog/general/?view=usa&ci=0199273103
Description:

Twenty-two scholars in sixteen European countries chart the English invasion of their national languages over the last five decades. They examine the particular groups of English words that have been adopted and the ways in which their meanings have been modified and in some cases transformed. They also consider the popular and political reactions over Europe to the influx of anglicisms.
