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: English in the Southern United States
Edited By: Stephen J. Nagle
Sara L. Sanders
Description:

Please Note: This is a new version of a previously announced text.

The English of the Southern United States is possibly the most studied of
any regional variety of any language. However, most, if not all, books
about Southern American English have been directed almost exclusively
toward scholars already working in the field. Written by a team of experts,
many of them internationally known, this volume provides a broad overview
of the foundations of, and current research on, language variation in the
Southern United States.
