Like literature and art, technology and engineering express ideas of human nature and the good life. Language and technology intersect when cooking and building, writing and playing follow instructions or execute programs, also when games, narratives, or amusement parks are propelled by dramaturgical machinery. Technologies simultaneously make up and help navigate today‘s multilingual world by way of techniques and technologies that support language acquisition.
