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: Lexical Cohesion and Corpus Linguistics
Edited By: John Flowerdew

Series Title: Benjamins Current Topics 17
Description:

Lexical cohesion is about meaning in text. It concerns the ways in which
lexical items relate to each other and to other cohesive devices so that
textual continuity is created. Traditionally, lexical cohesion (along with
other types of cohesion) has been investigated in individual texts. With
the advent of corpus techniques, however, there is potential to investigate
lexical cohesion with reference to large corpora. This collection of papers
illustrates a variety of corpus approaches to lexical cohesion.
Contributions deal with lexical cohesion in relation to rhetorical
structure, lexical bundles and discourse signalling, discourse intonation,
semantic prosody, use of signalling nouns, and corpus linguistic theory.
The volume also considers implications that innovative approaches to
lexical cohesion can have for language teaching.
