The paper looks at the informal texts published on the Italian Web. Such texts are often described as “rule-less” and confused; a systematic survey will show instead that their non-standard linguistic features follow many (unwritten) rules.

Abstract

The paper looks at the informal texts published on the Italian Web. Such texts are often described as “rule-less” and confused; a systematic survey will show instead that their non-standard linguistic features follow many (unwritten) rules. In the field of orthography, for example, the use of k instead of ch or c is widespread, but the use of y or j instead of i is virtually unknown – and the same rules apply to more complex features.
