Please Note: This is a new version of a previously announced text.

New technologies are constantly transforming traditional notions of
language use and literacy in online communication environments. While
previous research has provided a foundation for understanding the use of
new technologies in instructed second language environments, few studies
have investigated new literacies and electronic discourse beyond the
classroom setting. This volume seeks to address this gap by providing
corpus-based and empirical studies of electronic discourse analyzing social
and linguistic variation as well as communicative practices in chat,
discussion forums, blogs, and podcasts. Several chapters also examine the
assessment and integration of new literacies. This volume will serve as a
valuable resource for researchers, teachers, and students interested in
exploring electronic discourse and new literacies in language learning and
