This book addresses the nature of English use within contexts of
computer-mediated communication (CMC). CMC includes technologies through which
not only is language transmitted, but cultures are formed, ideologies are
shaped, power is contested, and sociolinguistic boundaries are crossed and
blurred. The volume therefore examines the English language in particular in
CMC – what it looks like, what it accomplishes, and what it means to speakers.

Linguistic Field(s): Sociolinguistics

Subject Language(s): English (eng)

Written In: English  (eng)
