- The internet language, as a variety of language in the information age, has aroused great interests and attention from the language researchers. The internet language is much different from that in people’s daily use whether in Chinese or English. Through the analysis of the internet language coupled with the theory of dialect, the conclusion that the internet language is a social dialect innovated by the young netizens can be got. But with the upgrade of technology, the internet language has been substituted more or less by emoji, so the phenomenon of cyberspeak is decreasing. As a result, it can be expected that normal language would return to where it should be sooner or later.
