Product Description

Review

'Crystal draws on his wealth of expertise to shed light on the important issues related to language form and use online.Internet Linguistics should be read by all graduate and undergraduate students interested in applied linguistics, sociolinguistics, and computer-mediated communication.' - Mark Warschauer, University of California

'David Crystal is a master linguist and master teacher. Given his expertise on language and the internet, he is the ideal author for this student text.' - Naomi S. Baron, American University

'As an undergraduate textbook Internet Linguistics would serve quite well, especially supplemented by original articles for depth or comparison and contrast of positions. Crystal suggests that the book assumes a basic knowledge of linguistic concepts, but most terms are understandable in context and he usually defines technical terms when they are critical to his point, so technical terms should not be a barrier. Internet Linguistics is certainly worth consideration as conveying a broad sense of a principled discipline in a format that is easy to read.' - Sean Rintel, The University of Queensland

A very good book aimed at e-communication linguistics, it focuses more on pragmatics and graphology within linguistics in an online environment but adds very interesting perspectives. This book is another great by David Crystal.

Format: Paperback
As an English Language graduate who hasn't read much linguistics stuff since graduating last year this was a gentle reintroduction to 'internet linguistics' (as Crystal calls it). This was an easy read and a lot lighter than a lot of linguistics books.

It was a very good general overview of internet linguistics, although I'd perhaps suggest not specific enough for undergraduate level beyond an overview. This book reawakened my interest in some areas of linguistics and I particularly thought that the chapter focusing on Twitter was interesting and well written.

I found myself telling people about some interesting fact I'd just read in the book, which shows how engaging and interesting I found the book. Most people use the internet so much that this is a topic a lot of people can find interest in and relate it to their own experiences.

If you want an unchallenging yet engaging introduction (or reminder) to internet linguistics, I'd recommend this book. Easy to read, interesting and a good overview.
