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."

Abstract: Meta-information concerns the way information is ordered: to achieve the ordering of non-linear representations as texts (sequences of linguistic utterances), the speaker must select a centre of attention (henceforth CA) and "predicate" about it. Hence, in our centering theory, the term "predicate" is reserved for the meta-informative level and is used in its initial Aristotelian sense.
