Reviews and Testimonials

"There are two major strengths to this text: the authors' global perspective and the various kinds of CMC analyzed. Having a global perspective from scholars located across the world on five different continents provides an interesting take on the English language especially as English as a lingua franca. Also, not only are various theoretical perspectives and research methods used but the authors investigate a variety of CMC to include email, instant message, chat, discussion forum, blog, video conferencing, YouTube, Web-based learning, and SMS, as well as issues regarding online discourse such as flaming, scamming, trolling, cyberbullying, language mixing, repelling, and creativity." [...] "A great handbook for academics."

– Dr. J.A. Dawson, East Carolina University, Technical Communication, Vol. 59, No. 2, May 2012

Truly impressive [...] "will no doubt be appreciated by a broad readership inside and outside the field of linguistics."

– Dr. Bernd Kortmann, Freiburg, Germany
