On the Markedness of Communication on Online Message Boards as Part of a Perception-Oriented Politeness Approach

  • The author shows, on the basis of Watts' model, that online communication on interaction platforms tends to be marked. Due to the media conditions, utterances can be misunderstood or ambigious. This often leads to a discussion about how a post is to be interpreted and about a third party who may also be reading - a potential FTA. To counteract this, verbal, paraverbal an non-verbal strategies aim at marking the posts through multiple codes by means of their user profile, with their avatar, signature, etc. - options many platforms provide and thus support such behaviour.
