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: Cline of the Korean Language
Subtitle: From 1945 to 2005
Written By: Sin-Hang Kang
Description:

This book shows systematically how the use of the Korean language in South
Korea has changed for fifty years.

It is composed of the following five parts: (1) the use of Korean in the
twenty first century, (2) ups and downs of words in fashion, (3) the change
of the Korean appellation system, (4) adopted words, (5) Sino-Korean words
and the education of them.

This book does not place emphasis on the norm of standard Korean, but the
real side of words and actions of Korean native speakers. So, it is a
valuable research material for studies of Korean in the latter half of the
twenty century.
