Because Internet (Gretchen McCullough)
Because Internet is an exploration of how the language used on the Internet, and in particular on social media and text messaging, has changed how we communicate with others.
The book explores how language and communication have evolved, even exploring how it changed with the advent of the landline. It also analyses the differences in languages between the generations and those who are familiar with the use of ‘digital language’ and those who are less so.
