A short analysis of verbal and visual elements in the English of World Wide Web pages

Paulo Cordone

Abstract


This document will look at how modern texts make increasingly use of both visual and verbal elements to convey meanings and to communicate to the target audience. It concentrates specifically on the way Web pages incorporate different devices, such as interactive images, virtual spaces and type faces. Web sites are not only one of the latest addition to the field of multimodal texts, but are also amongst the most interactive and user-definable of them.
