I was told by a tech writer friend that y'all might be able to give me some
pointers...I am looking for information about how the Net (in general)
has/is changing written English lexically, semantically, and syntatically.
This is for a research paper about dialects of English. Info about lexical
differences is not hard to find but I have yet to stumble on any info about
syntax differences *which are directly related to use of the Net*.

On-line or off-line sources or pointers to other people who
might have seen/done research on this subject are all welcome.

I have to say, reading this list has been kind of fun. Mostly I've been on
private, social mailing lists, and this is not too different. But very high
