This paper examines how people voice and interpret lexical interaction cues of implication in dyadic conversations through instant messaging (IM) in two studies. Communicators deploying few personal pronouns and a lot of accord words were assessed as more implicated in their conversations. These findings add to theoretical expansion in computer-mediated communication.
