The Influence of Computers, the Internet and Computer-Mediated Communication on Everyday English Information

Computers and the Internet gave rise to the emergence of computer-mediated communication (CMC). The Influence of Computers, the Internet and Computer-Mediated Communication on Everyday English focuses on the use of English in connection with computers and the Internet and on its influences on everyday English by analysing the dispersal of new meanings of words, neologisms, features of CMC and new metaphors. The intention is to show the computer- and Internet-related impact on the English language from several perspectives and to take several ways into consideration in which the Internet and CMC are changing language use and to evaluate this influence -- at least as far as this is possible.
