New Journal: Internet Pragmatics

New Journal: Internet Pragmatics (IP)

The new journal Internet Pragmatics will be launched in 2018 with John Benjamins.

Internet Pragmatics aims to explore the use of language and other semiotic codes in internet-mediated interaction, with pragmatics conceived broadly as a perspective on how people produce and interpret utterances in contextualized interactions. We welcome a wide range of perspectives on the pragmatics of internet-mediated discourse, and we aim to promote interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and transdisciplinary studies considering both qualitative and quantitative research. Because of the scope of internet pragmatics, international, intercultural, intracultural and glocalized studies are encouraged. We are interested in publishing research on internet pragmatics focusing on but not limited to:

  •  convention and innovation of internet-mediated language use
  •  pragmatics of social media
  •  internet genres
  •  internet-mediated (im)politeness, facework and relational work
  •  presentation and interpretation of selves and identities in and across internet-mediated interaction
  •  pragmatic acts, intentions and meanings in internet-mediated discourse
  •  figurative language use in internet-mediated discourse
  • philosophical issues of internet pragmatics
