The primary question I had of my research question was whether search engines like Google had an effect on how language is used in today’s modern world. Surprisingly there aren’t a lot of articles that pertain to this.
Marek, Kate. “Chapter 3: Installing And Configuring Google Analytics.” Library Technology Reports 47.5 (2011): 17-25. Academic Search Premier. Web. 10 Mar. 2014.
The closest article I’ve found so far that’s close to my originally chosen topic. It concerns itself primarily with how to filter Google specifically, but it doesn’t necessarily speak about how one’s linguistic skills are impacted by search engine terms. Language is a passing mention in this analytic article.
Shesen, Guo, and Zhang Ganzhou. “Building A Customised Google-Based Collocation Collector To Enhance Language Learning.” British Journal Of Educational Technology 38.4 (2007): 747-750. Academic Search Premier. Web. 10 Mar. 2014.
This article speaks to how search engines can actually impact language learning, but I’m not entirely sure if it’s entirely related to my topic so this will require further reading.
