LING 280 - The Language of Social Media with Dr. Maite Taboada

July 17, 2017
Print

LING 280 will answer all the questions you’ve ever asked yourself about language in social media:

• Why are people so nice on Facebook, so nasty on Twitter, and so braggy on Instagram?
• Are emojis a language?
• Why is it so hard to be sarcastic online, and so easy to be misunderstood?
