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: Linguistic Theory and Empirical Evidence
Edited By: Bob de Jonge
Yishai Tobin
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/sfsl.64
Series Title: Studies in Functional and Structural Linguistics 64
Description:

This volume further elaborates the empirical tradition of Columbia School (CS)
Linguistics by offering diverse empirical analyses for a wide variety of
languages. These studies open a much needed debate advocating the
necessity of the independent validation of linguistic hypotheses. This research
exemplifies how such a validation should be conducted by determining which
forms underlie the analyses and extracting those observations that are
considered to be objective. The volume consists of two parts: a section on
synchronic and diachronic grammatical problems and a section on Phonology
as Human Behavior (PHB), the Columbia School version of phonology, applied
to evolutionary, developmental and clinical issues and the phonotactics of the
selected lexicon of a literary text. It provides a wealth of useful empirical data
and in-depth and sophisticated qualitative and quantitative analyses of a broad
range of languages from diverse families: French, Spanish, Afrikaans, Dutch,
English, Polish, Russian, Japanese, and Hebrew.
