In recent years, the Internet has come to dominate our lives. E-mail, instant
messaging and chat are rapidly replacing conventional forms of correspondence,
and the Web has become the first port of call for both information enquiry and
leisure activity. How is this affecting language? There is a widespread view
that as 'technospeak' comes to rule, standards will be lost. In this book,
David Crystal argues the reverse: that the Internet has encouraged a dramatic
expansion in the variety and creativity of language. Covering a range of
Internet genres, including e-mail, chat, and the Web, this is a revealing
account of how the Internet is radically changing the way we use language. This
second edition has been thoroughly updated to account for more recent
phenomena, with a brand new chapter on blogging and instant messaging. Engaging
and accessible, it will continue to fascinate anyone who has ever used the
Internet.
