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."

Subtitle: [Okanagan Salish Narratives]
Written By: Anthony Mattina
Madeline DeSautel
URL: http://www.umt.edu/ling/UMOPL/umopl15.htm
Description:

This book is an edition of eight Colville-Okanagan Salish captík^ߨ (myths, legends) narrated in the 1970s by Dora Noyes DeSautel (1902-1982). A biographical sketch of the narrator, written by Adrian Holm, opens the book. An introductory section describes where and how the narratives were told, recorded, and edited; includes the free translations of the narratives along with brief explanatory notes; and sketches the basic inflect-ional facts of the language. The rest of the volume is the interlinearization of the eight texts in four lines: the surface phonetics, the segmentation of the line in stems and inflectional affixes, the morpheme gloss line, and the free translation. A glossary of all morphemes that occur in the texts completes the book. An audio
CD of the eight narratives accompanies the book.
