Are Blogs Edited? A Linguistic Survey of Italian Blogs Using Search Engines

Mirko Tavosanis

Many blogs are written by people with no formal training in public writing; this could suggest a low level of editing and general correctness. A quantitative analysis of misspellings, however, shows that in their orthography Italian blogs are as well revised as conventional Italian newspaper texts. On the other hand, their editing is more careful than the editing of the average of Italian web pages.
