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: The Acquisition of L2 Phonology
Edited By: Janusz Arabski
Adam Wojtaszek
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847693754
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition
Description:

"The Acquisition of L2 Phonology" is a wide-ranging new collection which
focuses on various aspects of the acquisition of an L2 phonological system.
The authors are researchers and practitioners from five different countries. The
volume has been divided into three major sections. Phonetic Analysis presents
five studies of language learners in both naturalistic and formal-educational
settings, which illustrate aspects of L2 production and perception. In
Phonological Analysis a more abstract and comparative perspective is taken, in
order to use recent theories modeling the route of L1/L2 pronunciation and
reading ability development to account for observable tendencies in learner
behavior. Pedagogical Perspectives consists of four contributions of high
practical value, which look at the mastery of native-like or highly intelligible
pronunciation as an important component of L2 education.
