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."

Series Title: LINCOM Classica
Description:

The present volume has demanded a year’s continuous work and a good deal of
anxious consideration from us both. But we shall be more than rewarded if it can
do anything to extend the share which English-speaking students can claim in
the marvellous increase of exact knowledge which the book itself records. It is
the boast of modern discovery to have made the world more thinkable and
human life more full of meaing in a thousand ways; and before the century
reaches its close, Comparative Philology, that is, the History of Language, will
have attained no mean rank in the great sisterhood of sciences whose task is to
explore the history of man (adapted from the preface of the translators).

Contents: Morphology (Stem Formation and Inflexion):Suffixes in -o- and -ā-,
Suffices in –r, Suffixes like -ero-, -erā-, -bho-, -monā-, and many more, the
Relation of Adjectives to Participles, Substantives denoting material things of
persons (Concrete Substantives), Nouns without Formative Suffixes (re-edition,
1891, New York; written in English).
