The Impact of Electronic Communication on Writing. ERIC Digest.
Abdullah, Mardziah Hayati
Noting that electronic communication places new demands on language that leads to interesting variations in written language use, this Digest summarizes insights gained from research on writing behavior and performance in the electronic age. It concludes that both the process and the content of writing are evolving in response to the increased use of electronic media for writing instruction and to the language of electronic communication itself.
