Pages: 202-209

Abstract:

The language used on the Internet continues to attract the interest of researchers from various scholarly fields. The rapid development of information technology and the specific characteristics of the new media environment bring about changes in the language, as well as the emergence of new electronic genres and styles. The issue being discussed in the present study is to what extent Internet language can be considered a different weblanguage, an internet-language, or whether it is rather a language variety, a type of a cultural dialect. In addition, it is worthwhile tracing the changes and the trends that are discernible in this language variety – whether it is diverging from- or converging on the standard language norm, or whether it is developing and imposing its own rules and norms.

Keywords:
