Language and Technology Watch
- Study Helper
I'm currently doing coursework on the effect technology has on language. I was wondering what your opinions were and if you had any useful ideas?
I mean, one thing you could focus on is how has txt speak influenced either teenagers' spoken language i.e. people who say "LOL" aloud, rather than say "L.O.L.". Another aspect you could look at how text speak has influenced their written language in the classroom. Maybe ask your teacher is it possible to look at kids who accidentally write text acronyms or misspell words or replace Standard English in their written work with more informal, text slang?
