The Linguistics of LOLspeak

This video shows a presentation by two linguists from Australia, Lauren Gawne and Jill Vaughan, who have studied LOLCats and the language that people use when creating LOLCats. They even include a discussion of the LOLCat Bible! If you prefer to read, you will find their work online at the Open Research Library.

Here is the video; also at YouTube.
