I've been working on my master thesis in English linguistics. I will analyze the communication by E-mails, SMS, Facebook and software such as What's app.
I've prepared a short survey, which you are kindly asked to answer. At the end there is a field with a text to submit, it will be some SMS/E-mail/whatever from you in English, to whoever, eg. it can be something like that:
Cant w8 2 cu soon! Miss ya xx
I am utterly miserable until I should be seeing you this wonderful evening.
My aim is to focus on different linguistic structures used in such communication, so you (both native and non-native speakers) could give me a hand! Thank you!!
