About the Author

David Barton is Professor of Language and Literacy in the Department of Linguistics at Lancaster University and Director of the Lancaster Literacy Research Centre. Carmen Lee is Assistant Professor in the Department of English at Chinese University of Hong Kong.


"Language Online introduces the reader to key concepts and themes in the study of digital language and discourse: multilingualism and linguistic diversity, self-presentation and stance-taking, language ideologies and learning. The authors offer clear definitions, a rich set of examples, valuable suggestions on research methodology and innovative insights into their own interpretations. Language Online achieves a remarkably good balance between cutting-edge research and reader-friendliness."

- Jannis Androutsopoulos, University of Hamburg, Germany

"Using a methodology grounded in both linguistics and digital literacies, Barton and Lee provide a valuable introduction to studying language online. They also carefully define terms and concepts that are used in both of these fields and are central to the study of language online--text and practices, among others...This volume will interest those who want to understand how language is changing as a result of new technologies and those pursuing their own research into language use online."

- A. M Laflen, Marist College, USA in CHOICE
