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: Multimodal Discourse Analysis
Subtitle: Systemic Functional Perspectives
Edited By: Kay L O'Halloran
Series Title: Open Linguistics Series
Description:

This book brings together cutting-edge research on multimodal texts and the 'discourses' generated through the interaction of two or more semiotic modes of communication; for example language, dynamic and static visual images, architecture and three-dimensional objects. This includes the study of transition and phase, camera and body movement, typography and how such choices orientate the viewer to particular readings of the text and context.

The contributors collected within this volume use the systemic functional approach to present frameworks, which are used to analyze how meaning is generated within a series of case studies. The result is a comprehensive survey of the ways in which enhanced meaning emerges through the interaction of more than one mode of communication.

Multimodal Discourse Analysis will be useful to researchers interested in the application of systemic functional linguistics to media studies, discourse analysis and coginitive linguistics.
