Abstract [en]

The explorative and descriptive study looks at Facebook statuses from the year 2013, and revises the orthographic status of the texts. The orthographic deviations are presented in categories and discussed and analyzed with the objective to possibly see some general tendencies to be able to add knowledge about user-generated written Spanish on Internet. The result shows that there are a lot of orthographic deviations in Facebook statuses, and some of the tendencies are the omission of accentuation marks, the incorrect usage of punctuation signs, influences from other languages in the lexicon and orthographic signs such as exclamation- and question marks and quotation marks and the informal orthography in informal statuses. Nevertheless, the study also shows that the language used on Internet is difficult to generalize since it demonstrates an individualistic, experimental and creative characteristic.
