Abstract [en]

Talking about society nowadays means talking about a digital society in which the influence of modern technologies and internet have changed our way of working, learning and establishing social relations. The digitalization of our lives shapes somehow the way we interact, but has it changed the way we speak? We do posses the digital tools to speak digitally, but how is our digital speech different to our oral speech?

In this paper we have focused on three groups of digital speakers: digital natives (younger than 20 years), digital residents (between 20 and 35 years), and digital immigrants (older than 35 years). After analyzing several of their digital conversations, we have found clear distinctions in their speech.

The digital immigrants have developed their own communicative strategies to communicate via digital chats. They seem to have a digital language of their own which differs from their oral speech. On the other hand, digital immigrants tend to imitate traditional strategies of the oral speech. But the most surprising results have been found in the group of ages between 20 and 35 years which share characteristics of both digital natives and digital immigrants, that is why we have given them the name "digital residents" and have considered them a group of their own. These digital residents have developed their own strategies, somehow similar to the ones used by natives, but at the same time, they tend to reproduce some strategies of the oral speech when speaking digitally.
