dc.description.abstract This thesis examines the structure of text messages. In recent years, literature speculating about electronically mediated communication has proliferated. An abundance of literature on technology and language exists, but little of it explores text messaging. The literature that looks at texting tends to focus on the social aspects of text communication or on the damage people fear it will cause to language. Little literature focuses on empirical analysis of text messaging from a linguistic perspective. Text messages are a communication medium with limitations and intricacies all their own, and they deserve attention.
