"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."
Cover Strategien der Integration und Isolation nicht-nativer Einheiten und Strukturen
[Strategies of Integration and Isolation of Non-Native Units and Structures]
This volume studies how speakers deal with loanwords from foreign languages. Are foreign words adapted in pronunciation, writing, flexion and syntax to the recipient language or do they keep characteristics of the language of their origin? Do loan units change the system of the recipient language or do they get changed by it? Methodical considerations to identify foreign words supplement these studies on German, Polish, Hebrew and Japanese.
