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: Multilingual Urban Scandinavia
Subtitle: New Linguistic Practices
Edited By: Pia Quist
Bente Ailin Svendsen
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847693129
Series Title: Multilingual Matters
Description:

This book presents, for the first time, an overarching, trans-Scandinavian,
comprehensive and comparable account of linguistic developments and
practices in late modern urban contact zones.

The book aims to capture the multilingual realities of all young people in
urban contexts, whether they are of migrant descent or not. Taking a
multi-layered approach to linguistic practices, chapters in the book
include structural and phonological analyses of new linguistic practices,
examine how these practices and their practitioners are perceived, and
discuss the sociolinguistic potentials of speakers when constructing,
challenging and negotiating identities. The book also contains three short
overview articles describing studies of multilingual practices in Sweden,
Denmark and Norway. The editors have aimed to make Scandinavian research on
urban multilingualism accessible to scholars and students who don’t speak
Scandinavian languages, and also to make a valuable contribution to the
global study of multilingualism.
