The study compares first-language (British English) and second-language (Kenyan English) data and will therefore appeal to readers interested in world Englishes.

Title: Language and the Internet
Subtitle: (2nd Edition)
Written By: David Crystal
Description:

2nd Edition of Language and the Internet

In recent years, the Internet has come to dominate our lives. E-mail,
instant messaging and chat are rapidly replacing conventional forms of
correspondence, and the Web has become the first port of call for both
information enquiry and leisure activity. How is this affecting language?
There is a widespread view that as 'technospeak' comes to rule, standards
will be lost. In this book, David Crystal argues the reverse: that the
Internet has encouraged a dramatic expansion in the variety and creativity
of language. Covering a range of Internet genres, including e-mail, chat,
and the Web, this is a revealing account of how the Internet is radically
changing the way we use language. This second edition has been thoroughly
updated to account for more recent phenomena, with a brand new chapter on
blogging and instant messaging. Engaging and accessible, it will continue
to fascinate anyone who has ever used the Internet.
