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: Text, Context, Concepts
Edited By: Cornelia Zelinsky-Wibbelt
Series Title: Text, Translation, Computational Processing
Description:

The common aim of the contributions to this volume is to shed light on the communication of conceptual structures. The papers investigate how speakers rely on the same cognitive dispositions in three different areas of transfer: in the lexicaliza-tion of metonymies and metaphors; in intercultural communication; and in expert-lay communication
