Qs: Studies on Email Problems

Editor for this issue: Steve Moran <stevelinguistlist.org>


We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate. In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query. To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Subject: Studies on "e-mail" problems


Dear Linguists,

I am currently looking for studies on "e-mail".

More precisely, does anyone know or is well informed about the
following two issues:

-problems of politeness in e-mails

-kind of information sent via e-mail in big firms (what kind of
information is sent without problem by e-mail and to the contrary,
what is the one that is not well suited to e-mails --> for example,
because people get upset ).

Every piece of information will be of help.

I will post a summary of responses.

A big thank to everyone.
