I will, in a way, divide the essay in two. One part (presumably the first) will mostly be about the internet’s effect on English generally. Then I will talk about how the Internet has affected the English of Norwegian upper secondary school students.

I will focus primarily on Internet sources, as it is an easy way of getting information. A big obstacle with this is that in order to get to the quality information, you have to go through quite a lot of not-so-good information, flawed information or personal opinions, none of which is really usable. One source I’ve found are the works of Dravid Crystal, arguably the best expert of the English language today (the URLs will be listed in the “List of Found Sources” below). These kinds of sources present a general statement of how the English language is changing, but to find more specific information on the Norwegian upper secondary school students, I will present some of my own research. I will post online questionnaires on Facebook and ask any upper secondary school students to reply to these questions (and ask them to send it to anyone they know of that is a Norwegian upper secondary school student). I will also go into classes at my local upper secondary school and ask the pupils to answer the questions (I might also try the school cantina for more answers).

Examples of questions: * To what extent do you think the Internet has affected your everyday language? * To what extent do you think the Internet has affected you formal language?

List of Found Sources: * Youtube: * David Crystal - How is the internet changing language today? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2XVdDSJHqY (13.05.12) * David Crystal - Texts and Tweets: myths and realities http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Boj8VYzDAy8&feature=related (13.05.12) * http://www.davidcrystal.com/DC_articles/Internet2.pdf * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_linguistics * Own
