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: Language and Social Networks, 2nd Edition
Written By: Lesley Milroy
URL: http://www.blackwellpublishers.co.uk/
Description:

Social networks - those informal and formal social relationships of which
any human society is composed - are distinguished by their own patterns of
language use. Lesley Milroy is concerned with the manner in which patterns
of linguistic variation characterize particular groups (social and
cultural, geographic, male and female) within a complex urban community.
First published in 1980, Language and Social Networks has had a great
influence on the development of sociolinguistics. The second edition
incorporates an extensive new chapter reappraising the original research
and discussing other sociolinguistic work in the same paradigm.
