Writing Portuguese Electronically: Spontaneous Spelling Reform.
Jensen, John B.
Hispania, v78 n4 p837-45 Dec 1995
Focuses on the attempts of Portuguese-speaking e-mail users to carry out "unofficial" spelling reforms as they deal with diacritical markings. The use of these markings on the Internet reflects individual user's felt need for accentuation. The preference for word-final accentuation over other types is much more harmonious to type and read than are midword marks. (10 references) (CK)
