the internet

NavBar: Updated on Oct 4

If you look at our navbar on this blog (the Pages above), you’ll see I have rearranged it and created new sections.

If you find an arrow pointing downwards, this means that there is content both on the name of the section you can see, and also on the other Pages appearing below the arrow when you move your mouse over it or something!

Feel free to post your comments or work wherever, as this is an interactive “textbook”, so to put it! ūüôā ‚̧ And please, don’t be shy if you encounter navigation problems or whatever — just let us know!

Language Awareness: prepositions (on the internet)

ON the internet / This is going ON my blog for sure!

We use “on” with stuff on screens. What’s on? (Qu√© echan -TV, movies/films, theater/theatre, concerts…)

AT + web address: but sometimes we use AT, as a pointer, deictic, pointing at a geographical spot in space! Check this out at talkingpeople.net. You can also use ON, the regular preposition.

IN is possible, when you feel inside the website, blog, for instance because you enter as an author or administrator. Or when the place is huge and you spend time there, surfing its pages. But this is subjective.

The safest option is ON. And AT when giving the address.

Are you ON facebook? (So this is why, OK? It’s a screen)

Subjective: but then, when we meet up on facebook, hahaha, then we might say, “I’ll see you in facebook!” as in “I’ll see you in class next day”.

Are you ON email?
