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."

All papers are divided into two main sections. Part I: Lexicography deals

special reference to English, Italian, Russian and Southern African
dictionaries for general- and special- purposes. The main focus is given to
the description of principles in lexicographic presentation of
non-equivalent lexics, rhyming slang, idioms, clichés and gender
nominations of people in bilingual and monolingual dictionaries.

Part II: Terminology and Terminography is devoted to description of the
current tendencies observed in terminology and terminography studies with
special reference to modern European languages such as English, Russian,
Norwegian, etc. Terms of different special domains are viewed from the

belonging to newly formed Languages for Special purposes, typical features
of recently appeared LSPs and presentations of new dictionaries’ projects
of different subject areas. This part reveals international nature of
current tendencies in terminology studies and shows the national ways of
their functioning and presentation in special dictionaries.
