Description
Summary:MO2NEI : #SWWDT! *see what we did there* seeks to explore notion of coded languages used in text messaging and online social networking, in relation to the way in which the English language has been modified and adapted to suit how Pacific Island and Maori Youth communicate using colloquialisms and account. This project aims to raise the consciousness around shifts and loss of language; through an examination of a hybrid language I call Polyslang. Not just as a spoken and written language, but as a way of life and culture. Online social networking provides the underlying structure for this research. My enquiry focuses on how these platforms create sub-communities and asks whether through participation we (I) are in fact creating a global Polynesian language.
