'Our everyday interest in social media means that different types of language used in a variety of platforms (such as Facebook and Twitter) deserve to be investigated more fully. The authors brilliantly show how this can be done, ranging from the use of ethnographic to corpus linguistic methods. Readers benefit from succinct chapter outlines, relevant case studies, further investigative questions and up-to-date bibliographic references.'
Vincent B Y Ooi, National University of Singapore
