Product Description


"Language Online introduces the reader to key concepts and themes in the study of digital language and discourse: multilingualism and linguistic diversity, self-presentation and stance-taking, language ideologies and learning. The authors offer clear definitions, a rich set of examples, valuable suggestions on research methodology and innovative insights into their own interpretations. Language Online achieves a remarkably good balance between cutting-edge research and reader-friendliness."

- Jannis Androutsopoulos, University of Hamburg, Germany

"Using a methodology grounded in both linguistics and digital literacies, Barton and Lee provide a valuable introduction to studying language online. They also carefully define terms and concepts that are used in both of these fields and are central to the study of language online--text and practices, among others...This volume will interest those who want to understand how language is changing as a result of new technologies and those pursuing their own research into language use online."

- A. M Laflen, Marist College, USA in CHOICE
