GOMEZ, Maria Nélida González de. New technological frontiers of information actions: questions and approaches. Ci. Inf. [online]. 2004, vol.33, n.1, pp.55-67. ISSN 0100-1965.

Significant changes in the concepts and approaches regarding information and communication have been taking place at the same time as the relationship between language uses and the technological mediations of such uses are also changing - although not in a causal way. The same has happened with the reformulation of information devices due to the increasing convergence of cultural and reproduction technologies and digital technologies. In this context, we can say that, when deactivating the physical constraints of information-transfer actions, other problems and possibilities of information search and retrieval arise. Thus, we deal with information communication among different interlocution communities, of which multicultural communication is a case as well as, perhaps, a paradigm, raising questions about metaphoric uses of language as new categories for understanding and describing information actions.

Keywords : Language; Information; Information retrieval; Information seeking; Digital diaspora.
