Gullah Bible ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Thu, 12 Jan 1995 03:51:56 CST From: Susan Herring Subject: cyberspeak 'Brick reality' is a new one on me. In a collection I am editing on computer-mediated communication, contributors generally refer to IRL (in real life), and, in one case, 'meat space'. (The latter term I think comes from cyberpunk literature.) None of the papers in the collection deals specifically with cyberspeak, but the bibliography contains nearly 200 references on computer-mediated communication. If you contact me privately, Jon, I'd be happy to e-mail you the bibliography. Susan Herring susan[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]utafll.uta.edu
