Query:   Dear all,

I'm Jenny, an English language research student at the National University of Singapore. For my thesis, I am currently dwelling on the differences in writing styles between the online classifieds of both adults and teenagers seeking for penpals.

Currently, i am facing great difficulty with situating my research study in this field as i can't seem to locate many journal articles that have studied on adult and adolescent writing styles. Also, i would like to get hold of articles that focuses on communication within the electronic world, especially if it isn't an analysis about chats....

hence, i was wondering if anyone can point me to useful journal articles or books and if possible, send me the articles via my email address

thanks very much for your help and time:)
