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: Towards an Elegant Syntax
Written By: Michal Brody
Series Title: Routledge Leading Linguists
Description:

This is a book of essays concerned with syntax, written between 1980 and 2001, in which the search for theoretical elegance takes centre stage. The conceptual difference between 'elegance' and the minimalist search for 'perfection' is examined and the consequences are shown to be wide ranging and radical, leading to a novel approach with a set of simplified potential primitives and axioms.
