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: Multidisciplinary Approaches to Code Switching
Edited By: Ludmila Isurin
Donald Winford
Kees de Bot
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SiBil%2041
Series Title: Studies in Bilingualism 41
Description:

The volume presents a selection of contributions by leading scholars in the
field of code-switching. In the past the phenomenon of code-switching was
studied within different subfields of linguistics and they all took their
own perspectives on code-switching without taking into account findings
from other subdisciplines. This book raises a question of a much broader
multidisciplinary approach to studying the phenomenon of code-switching;
calls for integration of disciplines; and illustrates how frameworks from
one subfield can be applied to models in another. The volume includes
survey chapters, empirical studies, contributions that use empirical data
to test new hypotheses about code-switching, or suggest new approaches and
models for the study of code-switching, and chapters that discuss
principles and constraints of code-switching, and code-switching vs.
transfer. The book is easily accessible to anyone who is interested in the
phenomenon of code-switching in bilinguals.
