Abstract [en]

It is argued here that ellipsis in English is evidence of interaction between non-native textchat users. Examples where users develop discourse, give comments on and encourage one another, repeat parts of discourse, and correct themselves or one another are presented. Not too surprisingly, since the data comes from academic seminars, developing discourse is the most common function. Furthermore, we argue this is evidence that they have formed a community of practice, which helps to promote learner autonomy.
