Title: Cohesive Profiling
Subtitle: Meaning and interaction in personal weblogs
Written By: Christian R. Hoffmann
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/pbns.219
Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 219
Description:

"Cohesive Profiling" provides one of the first linguistic descriptions of blog
discourse, focusing on the cohesive relations which enable users to construe
blogs as compatible meaningful wholes. With a corpus-based analysis of
cohesive relations in personal blogs, the study surprisingly reveals that there is
only limited cohesive rapport between the textual contributions of blog authors
and readers. The book retraces blogs’ technological, linguistic and generic
evolution and describes how today’s blog genres are structured and composed.
Additionally, it is shown how cohesive interaction, shared knowledge and
technological expertise converge in blog readers trying to keep track of blog
topics, purposes and identities over time. The book is of interest to researchers
in discourse analysis, corpus linguistics and pragmatics as well as to scholars
working in the field of computer-mediated communication.
