Research on language, media and technologies has been growing rapidly in
recent years. Media and technologies  have brought about the communication
revolution. Language is part of this revolution because it is through language
that communication is attained. Media and technology cannot, therefore be
separated from language which is a key element in communication.This domain of
language and social contexts has seen varied research. These include works on
some aspects of language (e. g. lexicology, semantics, phonology, syntax) as
used in  media and technologies both at national and international levels. 

Language, media and technologies work jointly and help us accomplish all sorts
of things in almost every area of human life. There is incredible and
extensive use of media and technology(e.g. newspapers, radio, TV, telephone,
computer and the internet) in both interpersonal and mass communication. All
the media and technology are related to language use. They influence language
in one way or the other. They may extend the usage of everyday speech and
writing; they may restraint language use and stimulate communication in a
second or foreign language. The kind of media or technology employed and the
participants may bring about variation in language use in these contexts. 

This book aims at bringing together scholarly works on the usages, forms and
functions of language use in media and technology, as well as the impact of
media and technology on language. It is going to be of immense importance to
language students, and a reference source to linguists who are interested in
the discourse of media and technology.

We invite originalabstracts or complete research papers that explore language
through the use of media (e.g. newspapers, radio, TV) and different
