The New Orality: Oral Characteristics of Computer-Mediated Communication.
Ferris, Sharmila Pixy; Montgomery, Maureen
New Jersey Journal of Communication, v4 n1 p55-60 Spr 1996
Considers the characteristics of orality and literacy developed in the work of scholars such as Walter Ong to consider computer-mediated communication (CMC) as the potential site of a "new orality" which is neither purely oral or literate. Notes that the medium of CMC is writing, which has traditionally represented the "literate," while the messages are often "oral." (PA)
