Abstract:

How genres emerge and evolve on the Internet has become one of the central
questions in studies of computer-mediated communication (CMC). This book
addresses the issue of genrefication by giving an in-depth analysis of
email hoaxes as a candidate for digital genre status. Email hoaxes are
deceptive messages that spread in digital social networks; they are a
fascinating object for discourse linguistics as they exemplify a major
pragmatic tendency in CMC, namely deceptivity and a lowering of sincerity
standards. This study examines formal and functional aspects of email
hoaxes and provides ample evidence both from a systematized corpus and
in situ data collected online. Besides a structural and
microlinguistic analysis, it identifies key issues such as pragmatic
duality, narrativity and textual variation and change in email hoaxes. In
conclusion, a digital genre model is outlined that bridges both the old/new
and the formal/functional gaps and may be applied to many other digital
genre ecologies.
