The phrase “literary” is not a commonly understood one in Australia.
A good definition may include, but is not limited to: The process by which information is obtained from sources of value and disseminated to readers or audiences.
This definition is not necessarily a literal one.
A book, film, television, magazine or video game may not be a literary device.
In the case of film, this can be defined as a “feature film, TV series, musical, or any other medium, with a content of the film being a product or feature of the medium”.
In a nutshell, a book is a document, a film is a filmstrip, a video game is a video or game system.
In Australia, we tend to associate with the film medium a certain type of material: sound recordings, sound recordings and sound effects, visual effects, motion pictures, etc. However, there are some areas in which we are not familiar with the terms “literature” and “literacy”, and some of these have been left vague.
The phrase “Literary devices” is used to describe some devices which do not use words or other types of information to deliver information.
It can refer to any devices which are primarily for reading, writing or listening to information.
Examples include: books, magazines, magazines of a printed medium, magazines and magazines of sound, and audio books.
For some devices, the term “literate” is more widely used, although it is not widely used by the general public.
One example of the term is the “literaphobe” or “literati” in the UK.
Another example is the term the “gramophone” in Australia, which is the use of a device which provides audio or video information.
These terms refer to devices which primarily focus on reading, but they can also refer to other types or devices which have a variety of other functions.
For example, there is a device for providing audio for movies which includes a microphone and speakers and also has a speaker system for playing back sound from an external speaker system.
Another example is a television which can provide live TV broadcasting with a microphone, and also provides sound from a sound system for viewing.
Many of the devices mentioned above, such as the book, magazine, filmstrip and video game system, are not used in the everyday life of Australians.
It is not just books that have literary meaning in Australia but other types and types of devices also.
For instance, there may be a phone or computer which provides information to a person who does not need it, or a TV or video system which can also provide live video broadcasting.
In Australia, it is important that we know the meaning of the word “liter” and the term for which it is used.
