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: This paper is a review of Abutalebi et al. (http://www.jneurosci.org/cgi/content/full/27/50/13762). This study is particularly worth highlighting as it could potentially have major implications for models of bilingual comprehension and speaks to the question of what the neuronal correlates of perceiving language switches may be. Our review also emphasizes our concern surrounding the contrast between "regular" and "irregular" language switches and a frank assessment of why we feel these particular findings should be interpreted with caution.
