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."

Review:

In my review of Sipt�r and T�rkenczy's Phonology of Hungarian,
<http://linguistlist.org/issues/12/12-2725.html>,
I made the following incorrect statement:

This somewhat negative view is supported by the fact that,
according to S+T, /kp/ is actually found in ten monomorphemic words
(page 129: Table 17).

There are actually no examples of -kp- monomorphemic clusters--
the ten examples are of -pk-. I think the other arguments against
positing a constraint to explain this gap still stand, however,
and welcome further feedback.
