In Language OnlineDavid Barton and Carmen Lee investigate the impact of the online world on the study of language. The effects of language use in the digital world can be seen in every aspect of language study, and as such new ways of researching the field are needed. In this book the authors look at language online from a variety of perspectives, providing a solid theoretical grounding, along with key concepts, but also incorporate essential practical elements. Chapters cover topical issues including multilingualism, identity, education and multimodality, and conclude by looking at how to carry out research into online language use. Throughout the book many examples are given, from a variety of digital platforms, and a number of different languages, including Chinese and English. Written in a clear and accessible style, this is a vital read, for both experienced researchers looking to work in the field, and those new to studying it. Language Onlineis an essential textbook for undergraduates and postgraduates working in the areas of new media, literacy and multimodality within the area of applied linguistics.
