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 Foundations of Arabic Linguistics
Subtitle: Sībawayhi and Early Arabic Grammatical Theory
Edited By: Amal Elesha Marogy
URL: http://www.brill.nl/foundations-arabic-linguistics
Series Title: Studies in Semitic Languages and Linguistics
Description:

This volume is intended as the first in a series of studies on traditional Arab
linguistic theories concentrating on Sībawayhi and his grammatical legacy.
Here, the reader is introduced to the major issues and themes that have
determined the development of Arabic grammar and presents Sībawayhi in the
context of his intellectual and social environment. The papers make significant
contributions to and offer in-depth introductions into major aspects of the
foundations of Arab Linguistics, early Syriac and medieval Hebrew linguistic
traditions. This is a unique reference on the three main Semitic linguistic
traditions, accompanied by a detailed analysis of some grammatical and
pragmatic aspects of 'Kitāb Sībawayhi' in the light of modern theories and
scholarship.
