Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject English - Miscellaneous, grade: 2,3, Free University of Berlin (Sprachenzentrum), course: Sprachpraxismodul Oral Skills/Writing Skills II, language: English, abstract: Due to the fact that the number of Internet users worldwide has grown at 146.2% within the last five years from 2000 to 2005, the Internet itself has become one of the most important and essential kinds of modern media we can imagine these days - at least in the industrialised countries . Recent research statistics from the 31st of March 2005 show that there are currently 888,681,131 Internet users all over the world, which constitutes 13.9% of the whole world population . The main reason why the Internet has established such a prominent position in the world of media is because it covers a wide-ranging field of interests such as news, career, spare time activities, and communication. Since human beings are primarily characterised by an intrinsic urge to communicate with one another, it is no wonder that the invention of the Internet has brought up various forms of computer mediated communication (CMC). One of the most popular and favoured forms of CMC is Internet Chat because it is said to be so close to face-to-face communication like no other kind of mediated communication. In the following section, this report will first give some brief background information about Internet Chat; then it will investigate the general structure pattern of chat conversations; and finally, it will analyse the relationship between verbal and nonverbal language aspects of chat communication in order to find out whether Internet Chat can really be regarded as a written form of oral communication which integrates oral components into graphical constructions of utterances (Schmidt 2000 : 126).

Activity Theory in Practice
41,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This ground-breaking book brings together cutting-edge researchers who study the transformation of practice through the enhancement and transformation of expertise. This is an important moment for such a contribution because expertise is in transition - moving toward collaboration in inter-organizational fields and continuous shaping of transformations. To understand and master this transition, powerful new conceptual tools are needed and are provided here. The theoretical framework which has shaped these studies is Cultural Historical Activity Theory (CHAT). CHAT analyses how people and organisations learn to do something new, and how both individuals and organisations change. The theoretical and methodological tools used have their origins in the work of Lev Vygotsky and A.N. Leont'ev. In recent years this body of work has aroused significant interest across the social sciences, management and communication studies. Working as part of an integrated international team, the authors identify specific findings which are of direct interest to the academic community, such as: the analysis of vertical learning between operational and strategic levels within complex organizations; the refinement of notions of identity and subject position within CHAT; the introduction of the concept of 'labour power' into CHAT; the development of a method of analysing discourse which theoretically coheres with CHAT and the design of projects. Activity Theory in Practice will be highly useful to practitioners, researchers, students and policy-makers who are interested in conceptual and empirical issues in all aspects of 'activity-based' research.

Conversational Writing
77,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The author analyses computer chat as a form of communication. While some forms of computer-mediated communication (CMC) deviate only marginally from traditional writing, computer chat is popularly considered to be written conversation and the most «oral» form of written CMC. This book systematically explores the varying degrees of conversationality («orality») in CMC, focusing in particular on a corpus of computer chat (synchronous and supersynchronous CMC) compiled by the author. The author employs Douglas Biber’s multidimensional methodology and situates the chats relative to a range of spoken and written genres on his dimensions of linguistic variation. The study fills a gap both in CMC linguistics as regards a systematic variationist approach to computer chat genres and in variationist linguistics as regards a description of conversational writing.

Our social relations seem more and more dominated by communication technologies and have assumed a wider dimension as our contacts spread in networks around the globe. Companies, nations and individuals come together, making '[t]he 21st century ... the age of networks' (v. Dijk 2006). This essay discusses the key features of network sociality and the debates around the concept of network society, focussing on the influence of internet use on social interaction particularly in form of virtual communities.

Phatic Communication

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 2,0, Technical University of Braunschweig, language: English, abstract: Phatic Communication What does it mean when someone asks ¿How are you?` Usually the speaker expects to hear a response like ¿I am fine, thank you. How are you?`, if he is trying to make ¿chit-chat`. It is assumed that all people are able to seize a distinction between chit-chat and the attempt to conduct a genuine conversation. To make it easier to understand I will start with two conversations which I am going to analyze: (1) Groundhog Day ML: I hope you enjoy the festivities. PC: Oh I¿m sure I¿m going to (pulls face). ML: There¿s there¿s talk of a blizzard. PC: Well, we may catch a break and that blizzard¿s gonna blow right by us. All of this moisture coming up outta the south by midday is probably gonna push on to the east of us and at high altitudes it¿s gonna crystallise and give us what we call snow. (winks) Probably be some accumulation. But here in Punxsutawney our high¿s gonna get up to about 30 today, teens tonight, chance of precipitation about 20 per cent today 20 per cent tomorrow. Did you wanna talk about the weather or were you just making chit-chat? ML: (shrugs and shakes head) Chit-chat. PC: OK. Right. See you later. B¿bye. ML: Oh em eh will you be checking out today Mr. Connors? PC: Chance of departure today one hundred per cent. Obviously MC just wanted to make chit-chat what means that Connor¿s detailed answer was inappropriate. Since he is doing this intentionally he could have reasons for his behaviour (e.g. he does not like chit-chat; he does not like MC). The next example is a conversation between two real estate salesmen: (2) Glengarry Glen Ross RR: How are you GA: Fine (,,) you mean on the board (,) you mean you mean you mean on the board RR: I (,) yes (,) the board GA: I'm fucked on the board Speakers: RR = Ricky Roma; GA = George Aaronow. Contextual assumptions: Roma is very successful in contrast to Aaronow, which is a fact well-known to both since their performances are being recorded on the mentioned board in their office. Only the best two salesmen will keep their jobs while the others are about to get fired. The question which arises is which utterance should be interpreted as phatic and which as non-phatic (if there is anything like that). Referring to example (1) we can say that Mrs. Lancaster¿s attempt to start a verbal exchange could be called phatic since she is trying to make contact with Connor. Connor¿s dis-preferred response, however, can be considered as negatively phatic. As mentioned above, i
