In this network a group of researchers coming from linguistics and communication studies work on a register of kindred projects. Together, they investigate into digital discourse and employ the range of newly developed tools in corpus linguistics and digital methods. For one, the project aims at systematizing the communicative forms found in current digital discourses and link them to cognate analytical tools. Building on that, the network promotes a set of empirical cases studies that examine the characteristic spectrum of semiotic features and interactive patterns.

The network is funded by a networking grant from the German Research Foundation. More here.
