Netspeak and Autism: A contextual analysis

Summary: 
The internet and online communication have become a big part of our daily social lives. The way we communicate online is sometimes different than the way we talk in person. In fact, written language on the internet has evolved into its own style, that we call “Netspeak”. The aim of this study is to better understand this style of online communication and the way people, including those in the autism community, feel about it.
