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: Bracketing Paradox in Russian
Author: Alicia Rose Trosky
Email: click here TO access email
Linguistic Field: Morphology
Subject Language: Russian
Abstract: I'm looking to find some sort of summary of bracketing paradoxes as they are in russian verbs. I am only a second year lingustics student and attempting to read Pesetsky's Russian Morphology paper has proved fruitless out of my own limitations, especially in the field of phonology. If there is any one who can set out in as few and simple words as possible this paradox for me, I would appreciate it. I would specifically like to know 1)what exactly the yers do to verbs and 2) why the prefix seems to be added last rather than added first and then the unit is inflected . I appreciate any help you may offer. My email address is alicia-trosky@uiowa.edu
