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."

Description:

With over 1,800 annotated maps, the Atlas of German Family Names draws together for the first time all of the family names that exist in the Federal Republic of Germany according to their statistical frequency and geographical distribution. The inclusion of a section on grammar addresses the needs of linguists, while a section on lexicology will be of particular use to cultural historians. Volume 4 provides the first systematic and comprehensive documentation of the spatial interconnections between toponymy and anthroponomy, using Germany as a paradigmatic subject of analysis.
