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: Morphological Autonomy
Subtitle: Perspectives From Romance Inflectional Morphology
Edited By: Martin Maiden

Description:

This book is about the nature of morphology and its place in the structure of
grammar. Drawing on a wide range of aspects of Romance inflectional
morphology, leading scholars present detailed arguments for the autonomy of
morphology, i.e. morphology has phenomena and mechanisms of its own that
are not reducible to syntax or phonology. But which principles and rules govern
this independent component and which phenomena can be described or
explicated by the mechanisms of the morphemic level? In shedding light on
these questions, this volume constitutes a major contribution to Romance
historical morphology in particular, and to our understanding of the nature and
importance of morphomic structure in language change in general.
