Abstract: "LOL, R U Serious? ROFL" The Effects of High Technology Communication Modes on Verbal Skills

Mentor: Dr.  Amani El-Alayli, Psychology

While informal writing and verbal abilities are slowly deteriorating among students, the use of high technology ("high-tech") and its new language is increasing. We hypothesized that the more frequent use of high-tech communication modes (e.g. text message, chatting on-line, e-mailing and blogging) would relate to lower verbal skills among students. For this study, college students took a number of verbal tests and reported the extent to which they send text messages, emails, and chat on-line. Frequency of text messaging was associated with lower sentence structure, grammar, and vocabulary. Significant correlations found with chatting frequency and perceived carefulness with lower grammar and sentence structure, and vocabulary abilities. Frequency emailing was associated with perceived carefulness in punctuation, grammar and sentence structure. Our findings for the modes of communication vary among the verbal and vocabulary ability tests. We discuss the implication of these findings for better understanding of this generation's new culture of technology and its developing language among students.
