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: Ikonische Gesten [Iconic Gestures]
Subtitle: Grundzüge einer linguistischen Theorie [Foundations for a Theory of Linguistics]
Written By: Andy Lücking

Description:

Despite a longstanding realization on the part of linguists of the important communicative function of non-verbal gestures there has been no linguistic modeling framework to analyze the interplay between language and gesture in human communication. Based upon semiotics and epistemology, the book provides the first such framework to enable a grammatical analysis that integrates language and gesture.
