Instant Messaging: A Written or an Oral Genre?
Majidi, Mojdeh
Online Submission, Poster presented at the Joint Conference of the American Association for Applied Linguistics and the Canadian Association of Applied Linguistics (Montreal, Canada, Jun 2006)
This study aims to investigate Instant Messaging from the new rhetorical genre perspective. Considering IM as a primary genre (Bakhtin, 1986) I intend to examine its social motive and social and textual features. Also, using Vygotsky's (1978, 1986) concept of situated learning, I will explain how IM users learn the genre to communicate through it. (Contains 1 footnote.) [This poster was also presented at the Annual School of Linguistics and Applied Language Studies Symposium (1st, Ottawa, Canada, September 2005).]
