Abstract

With the emergence of the internet and especially since the development of
web 2.0, people increasingly communicate in an online environment. Be that
as it may, this research domain has remained underexposed in Tijdschrift voor
Taalbeheersing. The current special issue therefore addresses the importance
of linguistic- and discourse-oriented research to explore the role of language
in digital communication. On the one hand, the research papers in this issue
investigate the influence of digital communication on communication styles.
On the other hand, online genres are studied with large-scale corpora and
(automatic) methods of analysis. We also highlight other research opportunities,
such as whether digital communication changes the language use and
proficiency of, for example, children and young people.
