Summary
"How is technology changing the way we write? In the fast-moving world of email, content is far more important than spelling and punctuation. Is it time to throw away the old rules - or should we hurry to the rescue?" "From pen-and-parchment in the email revolution, Naomi Baron's account shows how a variety of factors - not just technology, but also religious beliefs, the law, nationalism, and economics - shape the ways we read, write and communicate." "This anecdotal foray through the history of language and writing offers a perspective on the impact of the digital age on literacy and education, and on the future of our language."--Jacket
