Cablese [STOP]: How the Telegraph Influenced Language Use

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Scholars of communication history have studied the influences of old media on recent advances in technology to help rethink the contemporary definitions and boundaries of the term ‘new media’. However, accounts of the impact of the telegraph on new technologies have given limited attention to a similar impact on language. They have forgotten Cablese, a language used by journalists to send dispatches to the newspapers they worked for via the telegraph. This paper tells the story of Cablese and suggests a striking relevance to current day changes in language caused by the new media environment. It offers insight on how abbreviations in text messages (SMS) and acronyms in instant messaging (IM) and e-mail can be informed by analyzing the ‘old media’ of the telegraph and also contributes to the literature on communication history to engage new media scholars in the study of the past.
