Synopsis

Internet and Information and Communication Technologies represent the largest network of human online communication ever. Language is the material that enables communication to flow in this ever-growing digital world of emails, webs, blogs and SMS messages. And language, as always, transforms itself to meet the rapid demands of this virtual universe. As a result, a myriad of changes have occurred and are continuously occurring in the language of Internet users. The Texture of Internet explores the latest linguistic issues regarding these language transformations focusing on texting, email writing, website texture, new digital genres such as blogs, and the potential applications of Internet to specific linguistic professional settings (e.g. translation, linguistic research or language teaching). This book will become a key reference for anyone interested in unveiling the intricacies of language use in our technological environment. Santiago Posteguillo, Maria Jose Esteve, and Lluisa Gea-Valor have compiled an excellent set of contributions from Spain, United Kingdom, and Hong Kong on the analysis of language use in Internet and Information and Communication Technologies.

They all are researchers and teachers of Languages for Specific Purposes and Linguistics at Universitat Jaume I in Castello, Spain. Their experience in Internet language analysis has produced a most valuable volume on the matter.
