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."


Book Information

   

Title: A Grebo–English Dictionary
Written By: Gordon Innes
Description:

Originally published in 1967, this dictionary of Grebo, one of the Kru
languages spoken in South-west Liberia, will be of value not only to those
who are concerned with using the language, but also to scholars engaged in
comparative studies; the latter will have here a comprehensive and reliable
body of data, presented in an eminently usable form. All the Grebo material
is tone-marked, a point of particular importance in a language which is one
of the few in West Africa that distinguishes four tone-levels.
