Dissertation Abstract:

The thesis is composed of preliminaries, three chapters, closing
remarks and recommendations, a bibliography, four appendixes,
and summaries in Romanian, Russian and English.

In the Preliminaries an introduction is made into the research that has
been carried out. It enumerates the objectives of the study, methods and
approaches applied, formulates the hypothesis and gives other details of the
investigation in question.

Chapter I: 'Communication as means of human existence' is a
description of some of the linguistic peculiarities of computerised discourse. It
supplies theoretical arguments in favour of the need to modify the traditional
opposition oral discourse / written discourse as a result of reinterpretation of
definitions of oral and written discourse from the point of view of communicative
approach to language. We suggest the following trichotomy: oral discourse / written
discourse / computerised discourse.

Chapter II: 'Conversational analysis and its application in terms of chat
rooms' examines the concept of conversation in correlation with dialog
and discussion. A more detailed research of conversation from the
standpoint of linguistics, psychology, sociology and philosophy has only started in
the last decades of the 20th century. The chapter in question provides a
description of the peculiarities of communicative context, communicative strategies of
the chat room conversations, as well as some details related to the system and
ritual constraints and their impact on human communication.

Chapter III: 'The study of the computer-mediated conversation
'grammar' is a functional and pragmatic research of the integrated chatroom
conversation model 158 units. Peculiarities of turn-taking, as well as those of
interruptions and pauses have been examined here.

The thesis also contains four appendixes: in Appendix 1 there are
samples of chatroom conversations; in Appendix 2 we have included a list of the
most frequent abbreviations used in chat, with their description and
translation into Romanian; Appendix 3 is a glossary of main terms that have been used
in our thesis, Appendix 4 is a list of abbreviations used in the dissertation.

To make it more convenient for the reader, the bibliography has been
divided into two parts: traditional and online sources. Mention must be made that
some of the online resources may no longer be technically available when one reads the
