Anagramas -Rumbos y sentidos de la comunicación-

Print version ISSN 1692-2522


ZAPATA MONTOYA, Guillermo León. Metaphors for Navigating on the Web. anagramas rumbos sentidos comun. [online]. 2012, vol.10, n.20, pp.109-116. ISSN 1692-2522.

As Internet and the permanent communication it has generated through social networks consolidate, same navigators have created a specific language which, in many cases, has resulted in a connotative way of naming things. Doctoral thesis ''Possibilities of Autonomous Learning from a Cyber-Multimedia Study: University Cases in Medellin,'' has demonstrated the recurrent use of metaphors during chats among those navigating on the Web intended to denote the action, procedure or activity conducted on the virtual world. This topic has been developed in this article as a partial advance of the already named research work.

Keywords : Internet; metaphors; web 2.0; imaginary; virtuality.
