The construction of emotion in multilingual computer-mediated interaction
This chapter investigates the construction of emotion in L1-L2 Spanish in computer-mediated (CM) text interaction. Based on a corpus of text-based conversations between L1 Spanish users and intermediate L2 speakers of Spanish, analysis shows that both groups employ a range of multisemiotic resources to communicate emotion. These resources include emoticons, punctuation, capitalization, explicit emotion words, and code-switching. By giving much-needed attention to emotion in synchronous CM L1 and L2 interaction, this chapter addresses an important research gap and demonstrates how even novice L2 speakers interact as competent users of the language, given the affordances and constraints of the medium of engagement.
