It is a required book for scholars, researchersand students who want to become acquainted with the latest theoretical,empirical and computational advances in the expanding field of web genreresearch. The study of web genre is an overarching and interdisciplinarynovel area of research that spans from corpus linguistics, computationallinguistics, NLP, and text-technology, to web mining, webometrics, socialnetwork analysis and information studies.
