Title: Spelling, accent and identity in computer-mediated communication
Author: Philip A Shaw

Institution: Stockholm University
Linguistic Field: Pragmatics; Sociolinguistics
Abstract: An analysis of home page spellings in relation to the accents they evoke. One of the most obvious developments connected with modern electronic communication is the opening up of an area of publicly visible language from what Sebba (2003a) calls the partially regulated zone of spelling. This zone appears in such synchronous media as instant messaging, chatrooms and ICQ (‘I seek you’) and asynchronous ones including SMS text messages, blogs, email and homepages.
