Digital Discourse offers a distinctly sociolinguistic perspective on the natureof language in digital technologies. It starts by simply bringing new mediasociolinguistics up to date, addressing current technologies like instantmessaging, textmessaging, blogging, photo-sharing, mobile phones, gaming,social network sites, and video sharing. Chapters cover a range ofcommunicative contexts (journalism, gaming, tourism, leisure, performance,public debate), communicators (professional and lay, young people andadults, intimates and groups), and languages (Irish, Hebrew, Chinese,Finnish, Japanese, German, Greek, Arabic, and French). The volume isorganized around topics of primary interest to sociolinguists, including genre,style and stance. With commentaries from the two most internationallyrecognized scholars of new media discourse (Naomi Baron and SusanHerring) and essays by well-established scholars and new voices insociolinguistics, the volume will be more current, more diverse, and morethematically unified than any other collection on the topic.
