Fear and Loathing on Twitter: Attitudes towards Language

Popič, Damjan; Darja Fišer

The paper deals with the sociolinguistic concept of prestige imbued in the notion of standard language, and the social status connected to the inherent language skill (or lack thereof). To this end, we analyse Slovenian tweets pertaining to language use and the (in-)correctness of other users' use of language, propose a typology, especially in cases where language use is used as an argument against someone's qualifications or beliefs.
