Johanyak, Michael F.
Computers and Composition, v14 n1 p91-110 Apr 1997
Claims that participants in computer-mediated "chat" (CMC) produce a kind of hybrid text. Stresses the importance of investigating the individual texts and writing practices of each participant in CMC studies to better understand what occurs when language users bring individual cognitive, social, and contextual factors with them to a computer-mediated discussion.
