Digital Discourse: Language in the New Media

4.11 - 1251 ratings - Source

Digital Discourse offers a distinctly sociolinguistic perspective on the nature of language in digital technologies. It starts by simply bringing new media sociolinguistics up to date, addressing current technologies like instant messaging, textmessaging, blogging, photo-sharing, mobile phones, gaming, social network sites, and video sharing. Chapters cover a range of communicative contexts (journalism, gaming, tourism, leisure, performance, public debate), communicators (professional and lay, young people and adults, intimates and groups), and languages (Irish, Hebrew, Chinese, Finnish, Japanese, German, Greek, Arabic, and French). The volume is organized around topics of primary interest to sociolinguists, including genre, style and stance. With commentaries from the two most internationally recognized scholars of new media discourse (Naomi Baron and Susan Herring) and essays by well-established scholars and new voices in sociolinguistics, the volume will be more current, more diverse, and more thematically unified than any other collection on the topic.See Fakatsa (girls-only community of practice) and playful use of Hebrew orthography/digital typography Hermeneutic cycle ... as manifestation of translocality, 157 micro-heteroglossic comments, 292 on MySpace profile pages, 293 online linguistic heterogeneity, ... pop song example, 284a€“285 Heteroglossic spaces (of new media), xxvi Hine, C., 54a€“55 Honda, K., 101 Honeycutt, C., 112 Human body.
