In view of technological evolutions, the way people communicate has dramatically changed in less than two decades. Linguistic studies on the subject have been numerous and this is one of the reasons why the Linguistic Research Unit of the Language & Communication Institute (PLIN) of the Université
catholique de Louvain decided in 2016 to organize a one day workshop on this hot topic.
This follow-up volume is structured in two main sections. The first section (From automatic processing…) focuses on automatic processing of language and offers chapters related to automatized recuperation and transmission of information, as well as to automatized analyses of large new media corpora.
The second section (…to social impact) focuses on the social impact of new media as to writing processes, multimodal interaction and discursive processes. This distinction is of course in no way dichotomist, but rather points towards a different of focus of the chapters.
The variety of topics included is further evidence, if needed, that new media have an impact on almost any field of linguistics.
