Product description

Review

"This book provides an important look at how the Internet has affected our use of language. To my knowledge, there are no other comparable books available on this subject. Issues of language are certainly treated in many other books about the Internet, but this one features linguistics as its main topic. The book will be an important contribution." Patricia Wallace, Ph.D., Director, Information Services and Instructional Technologies Center for Talented Youth, The John Hopkins University Author, The Psychology and the Internet

Book Description

In recent years, the Internet has come to dominate our lives. Covering a range of genres, including e-mail, chat, and the Web, David Crystal reveals how the Internet is radically changing how we use language. Engaging and accessible, this book will continue to fascinate anyone who has used the Internet.
