"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."
Vom Aramäischen zum Alttürkischen [From Aramaic to Old Turkic: Issues in Translating Manichean Texts]
De Gruyter Abhandlungen der Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Göttingen. Neue Folge 29
Manichaeism wanted to become a world religion. Thus, the problem of translating the Holy Scriptures was of paramount importance. The twelve studies in this volume examine the linguistic and cultural diversity and unique features of the translated texts of Eastern Manichaeism. This book will be of great interest to scholars of religious studies and to researchers in the fields of cultural history and language contact.
