Book Information


Title: Internet Linguistics
Subtitle: A Student Guide
Written By: David Crystal

The Internet is now an integral part of contemporary life, and linguists are
increasingly studying its influence on language. In this student-friendly
guidebook, leading language authority Professor David Crystal follows on
from his landmark bestseller "Language and the Internet" and presents the
area as a new field: Internet linguistics.

In his engaging trademark style, Crystal addresses the online linguistic
issues that affect us on a daily basis, incorporating real-life examples drawn
from his own studies and personal involvement with Internet companies. He
provides new linguistic analyses of Twitter, Internet security, and online
advertising, explores the evolving multilingual character of the Internet, and
offers illuminating observations about a wide range of online behaviour, from
spam to exclamation marks.

Including many activities and suggestions for further research, this is the
essential introduction to a critical new field for students of all levels of
English language, linguistics and new media.
