A linguistically informed look at how our digital world is transforming the English language. Language is humanity's most spectacular open-source project, and the internet is making our language change faster and in more interesting ways than ever before. Internet conversations are structured by the shape of our apps and platforms, from the grammar of status updates to the protocols of comments and @replies. Linguistically inventive online communities spread new slang and jargon with dizzying speed. What's more, social media is a vast laboratory of unedited, unfiltered words where we can watch language evolve in real time. Even the most absurd-looking slang has genuine patterns behind it. Internet linguist Gretchen McCulloch explores the deep forces that shape human language and influence the way we communicate with one another. She explains how your first social internet experience influences whether you prefer "LOL" or "lol," why ~sparkly tildes~ succeeded where centuries of proposals for irony punctuation had failed, what emoji have in common with physical gestures, and how the artfully disarrayed language of animal memes like lolcats and doggo made them more likely to spread. Because Internet is essential reading for anyone who's ever puzzled over how to punctuate a text message or wondered where memes come from. It's the perfect book for understanding how the internet is changing the English language, why that's a good thing, and what our online interactions reveal about who we are.… (lisätietoja)

Exceeded my expectations -- I was expecting a book which simply looked at words/syntax currently used on the Internet and traced that back to origins, but this does a more academic linguistic analysis of how various epochs of Internet use have contributed to language on the Internet (and which has now greatly influenced all language). Pretty thorough coverage of the topic without being boring, even for someone with only a passing interest in linguistics and no academic background in it. ( )

From my blog: "I guess any subject could be academic (especially when your children study your childhood music at school, but let's not get diverted onto that), but you know what I mean. Because Internet by Gretchen McCulloch is about linguistics on the internet. One of the things I loved about it is how it explained how I'm an "old internet" person, and why I put ellipses at the end of sentences in messages and tweets and how it can be misunderstood by young people. If you're reading this then you probably like words, and the internet, so I think you'd like this." ( )

What a fascinating listen; the author read the audiobook, and she did a great job. I sometimes feel like an internet newbie even though I’m so old, but there’s a lot of stuff I’ve somehow missed out on. It was really fun to remember where my internet life started, and it’s so interesting to hear about the changing language today. ( )

Gretchen McCulloch is an internet linguist, how cool is that?

In Because Internet - Understanding the New Rules of Language, Gretchen McCulloch observes just how fast internet language has changed and how quickly it continues to move and evolve. Internet slang and jargon varies by generation, country, location, friend group and more and I honestly don't know how internet linguists can keep up.

I enjoyed Gretchen's thoughts on new words from Chapter 8:

"Any one of us can coin a word or compose a sentence that has never been said before. And it now exists in the language as soon as we utter it. Whether it winks in and out for a single moment or whether it catches on and endures in the minds of people yet unborn."

In Because Internet, Gretchen casts a detailed linguistic eye over digital communications and interactions from the early beginnings of the internet in chat rooms like IRC and discussion boards, to the evolution of text messages, MMS, emojis, memes and GIFs.

I was surprised to find I didn't know the difference between emoticons and emojis (emoticons can be represented by the keys on your keyboard, and emojis are pictograms that could include images of flowers or a slice of cake). And while listening to the chapter on emoji and internet gestures, I realised I don't know what many of the hand gestures actually mean.

I chose to listen to the audiobook for this title and loved the chapter that discussed the use of repeating letters to add emphasis and I do this a lot! I can't seem to recall what this is called and can't flip back through the book to find it which is soooooooo annoying! (See what I did there?) For this and other reasons (the section on emoticons come to mind) I really think this would have been better read in print.

I enjoyed the author's observation on changing language from Chapter 8:

"When you lay a book down and come back to it, you expect all its ink to stay where you left it. But the only languages that stay unchanging are the dead ones."

After reading Because Internet - Understanding the New Rules of Language by Gretchen McCulloch, I've learned that it's pointless to lay down rules for language on the internet; who is going to follow them? It's also an impossible task to comprehensively record internet language in its entirety at any given point in time.

The best we can hope for is a bird's eye view and Gretchen McCulloch has certainly given me that. ( )

Boring, trite. Also, at least as much about pop culture in general as language and other symbol systems. ( )
