Lectures of General Interest: Internet Linguistics Lecture

In this lecture David Crystal looks at how language is changing linguistically as a result of the Internet. He discusses the challenges of having access to personal electronic data, e-mail, texting, instant messaging etc., in order to research these changes effectively. He challenges the view that the kind of language being used in these informal contexts is having a negative impact on the development of the English language. Listen to a Lecture
