Teen Language and IM

Sali Tagliamonte and Derick Denis have recently published an article dealing with teen language variation in IM language. Although a lot of people have looked at IM, Tagliamonte and Denis actually analyze linguistic variants found in (English-speaking Canadian) teen speech, comparing patterns of variation in IM with those found in interviews with the same people. Here's the reference:

Tagliamonte, S., & Denis, D. (2008). Linguistic ruin? LOL. Instant messaging and teen language. American Speech, 83(1), 3-34.

Happy reading.
