The Generation Study About Netspeak Semantic Vagueness

Jinyu DONG

Abstract


To study a linguistic phenomenon, you need to know its generation mechanism first. The formation of language and discourse is a really complicated process. It is not only a process to code speech in a multi-angle and multi-level way, but also a result of speakers’ special psychological effect. So it plays an important effect to study the generation of netspeak semantic vagueness. There are both similarities and differences between the generative mechanism of netspeak semantic vagueness and the entitative language. The distinctive and vital factor in generative mechanism of netspeak semantic vagueness is netspeak’s variability which is endowed in the course of its evolving and configurating, not only because it is generated through language mutation, but the metamorphosis pervades each level of netspeak, including lexical, grammar, semantic and so on.
