Because Internet Understanding the New Rules of Language

Eed What's social media is a vast laboratory of unedited unfiltered words where we can watch language evolve in real timeEven the most absurd looking slang has genuine patterns behind it Internet linguist Gretchen McCulloch explores the deep forces that shape human language and influence the way we communicate with one another She explains how your first social internet experience influences whether you prefer LOL or lol why sparkly tildes succeeded where centuries of proposals for ir. I was so excited to finally get this audiobook on loan from my library I felt like I d been waiting for months which of course is a great sign I love linguistics and this is a popular book so I was expecting a good solid readWell it s a weird book Informative yes but also weirdIt s weird because McCulloch uses words like wonderfully and innovative to praise EVERY SINGLE CHANGE that has been made to communication in The Internet Age Fine I m all for progress and optimism too but her firm Everything Is Awesome stance sounded far too enthusiastic It was almost like she was trying to convince herself while she was convincing us that emoticons abbreviations alternate spellings and adopted lingo are all absolutely an enhancement to our culture and communication no matter what they add She only talks about how great this evolution must be and leaves no room for the ways some of these changes might not be so wonderful IMHO it s not a full examination if all sides are not exploredIt s also weird because the audio version is read by the author which is rarely a good thing and this case fits the rule McCulloch reads the book at breakneck speed while adding a dash of smugness Seriously I stopped my Overdrive app multiple times just to ensure the speed was still on 1x Perhaps this is why a lot of Audible and Overdrive reviewers are stating they need to revisit this book laterI did learn a bit from this book but I couldn t finish because I dreaded coming back to that voice I might see if the eBook is available through Overdrive just to finish it out

Ony punctuation had failed what emoji have in common with physical gestures and how the artfully disarrayed language of animal memes like lolcats and doggo made them likely to spreadBecause Internet is essential reading for anyone who's ever puzzled over how to punctuate a text message or wondered where memes come from It's the perfect book for understanding how the internet is changing the English language why that's a good thing and what our online interactions reveal about who we a. In brief A linguist looks at the ways the internet has changed English with digressions into internet culture as a wholeFull disclosure This was a reading copy which I received through work with the expectation that I would like it enough to review it and then order it for stock This book is out July 23 2019Thoughts This was a really interesting read containing a lot of stuff I knew without knowing and also stuff I hadn t thought about It s also a good well structured introduction to linguistics and specifically sociolinguistics not as in depth as a textbook would be but with compressed versions of the core ideas in accessible modern language I liked that McCulloch makes a point to not only lay out her reasoning as to why she focused on some linguistic features over others but also to cite originators of memes and slang when possibleAs for the contents they re a little hard to sum up simply because there s a lot of stuff covered The evolution of internet culture and generational profiles of its users The semantic uses of gifs and emojis Twitter and Facebook as research tools Minimalist Tumblr punctuation and the contentiousness of periods in texts The history of memes The informality of emails compared to letters Emphatic letter duplication Just for starters Like I said I knew a lot of the content just from living on the internet for so long but it was nice having it verbalized and the sociology I largely did not know and it was very coolAnd while McCulloch doesn t cover everything the because noun phrase formation doesn t appear despite the title for instance and the spread of internet usages into spoken English is barely touched on a lot of those gaps are things you could do a dissertation on and internet linguistics is a pretty new field so I have hopes for either a follow up or a book by somebody else She definitely leaves things open and encouraging to anyone wanting to follow her lead Doing linguistics research and stumped for ideas Hit me up I have thoughtsSo yeah definitely a good book and very much written for me the internet goblin linguistics nerd Anyone who s interested in language the internet understanding what the heck is up with kids these days andor the social history of our times should add this to their TBR810To bear in mind Will challenge your ideas about language and the internet unless you re a linguist already If you re already a linguist will give you at least ten ideas for research papers Might also give you flashbacks to the 1990s regardless of educational leanings
