Nadine Rentel, Tilman Schröder and Ramona Schröpf

Das Partizipations- und Interaktionspotenzial des Web 2.0 hat einerseits in etablierten Text- und Handlungsmustern des digitalen Raums nachhaltige Veränderungsprozesse angestoßen, andererseits die Herausbildung neuer Diskurspraxen überhaupt erst ermöglicht. Am Beispiel virtueller Formate wie Chats, Blogs, Foren und sozialen Netzwerken widmen sich die Beiträge des Bandes dem Wandel kommunikativer Handlungsschemata im Deutschen und im Spanischen.

We argue that a linguistic approach to these processes involves a careful study of the elements that constitute a genre and the respective discursive traditions in order to demonstrate changes in the profile of a textual genre or to identify its structural and rhetorical core. At the same time we highlight the theoretical and methodological challenges to explain the influence of diversification, mixing and convergence processes in the generic change between convention and innovation as it accelerates in phases of strong media change.The theoretical reflections are accompanied by an analysis of the textual genre of letters to the editor or letters to the direction which belongs to a well-established genre tradition and which reflects the socio-historical context of its production very clearly (e.g. the system of mass media, the role of editorials, the interaction with readers). Moreover, its textual structure and framework of "originalization" are determined by this context.
