COSTA, Sérgio Roberto. Cyberspace (hypert)texts: reading-writing mutations. Cad. CEDES [online]. 2005, vol.25, n.65, pp. 102-116. ISSN 0101-3262. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-32622005000100008.
The internet space has new forms of writing and reading with specific characteristics that provoke changes in the reading and writing that differ from the canonical progressiveness of the tools or the traditional writing gadgets. Our goal is to discuss and analyze these mutations, considering the emergence of new discursive and textual genres, historic-social products made in the computer. In the analysis, we focus on the enunciative-discursive relation of the tool, of the support, of the mechanisms, of the code materiality, of the enunciative space of the hypertextual architecture with some forms of communication (email, forums, chats ) and with the navigation (production and understanding) hypertextual, as of two concepts of genres: The Bakhtin's discursive (1953/1994) and the Bronckart's textual (1999). We could conclude that discursive-linguistic and enunciative characteristics of various orders, linked to the tool, to the support and their gadgets, to the way of hypertextual communication and to the virtual enunciative space, have taken us to point out the emergence of new genres and new strategies of reading and writing.
