Abstract:

Are email and SMS forms of writing or speech? This question cannot be
answered easily because their registers are hybrid; they make use of both
orality and literacy. This book offers an accurate placement of emails and
text messages along the written/spoken continuum. Emails and text messages
are also compared to letters and phone calls while a closer comparison of
SMS and telegrams shows how far text messaging can be regarded as a
renaissance of telegrams. Attention is further paid to multimedia messaging
and questions concerning the proportion of image to text, picture
categories as well as MMS dialogues are approached. The book finally
comments on linguistic changes and deals with the German language
community's concern with regard to the increasing use of Anglicisms.

Contents:

Private email and text messages (SMS): linguistic features of the involved
