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: The development of J. R. Firth's phonological views in the 1930s
Author: John S. Coleman
Homepage: http://www.phon.ox.ac.uk/~jcoleman
Institution: University of Oxford
Linguistic Field: Phonetics; Phonology
Abstract: Battaner-Moro (2003), a paper presented at the 15th International Congress of the Phonetic Sciences, advances several erroneous claims concerning J. R. Firth's contributions to prosodic phonology. In this note, I show that the central aspects of Firth's phonological thinking were already manifest in his publications from the 1930s.
