Protean Communication: The Language of Computer-Mediated Communication.
Murray, Denise E.
TESOL Quarterly, v34 n3 p397-421 Aut 2000
Examines the speech communities associated with computer-mediated communication (CMC). Summarizes results from research and adds a critical perspective by questioning who is advantaged and disadvantaged by CMC. Brings these concerns to bear on the application of CMC to distance education, raising questions about its use in teaching English as a Second Language and arguing that the use of CMC should be shaped by the needs of the profession.
