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: Formal Properties of Measurement Constructions
Written By: Kimiko Nakanishi
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sp/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110185980-1
Series Title: Interface Explorations [IE] 12
Description:

This book investigates the semantics and syntax-semantics interface of
measurement constructions, such as (non-)split quantifiers and
comparatives. The cross-linguistic investigation reveals that seemingly
diverse constructions can be categorized into two classes depending on
whether they measure nominal or verbal predicates, and shows that the
classification accounts for why certain constructions have certain
characteristics concerning distributivity and single-event predicates.
Throughout the book, particular emphasis is placed on issues of
compositionality.
