Abstract:

Has the internet changed the nature of conducting controversies? This
question cannot be answered easily as different forms of human interaction
in an online environment exist and controversies in an online environment
have not been analyzed from a linguistic point of view so far. On the other
hand, there are many linguistic analyses of controversies in the Early
Modern Period. First, this volume describes the communicative background of
two online discussion forums dedicated to the study of historical arms and
armor. Then, the volume analyzes the similarities and differences between
Early Modern controversies and controversies in online internet discussion
forums. Further, this book offers an accurate analysis of the strategies
used in online discussion forums, analyzing two controversial threads taken
from two online discussion forums and provides insights into the individual
tactics and strategies applied in online controversies and highlights the
similarities and differences of applied principles, norms, and rules. The
book finally comments on stylistic choices used by participants in the
controversies.
