The purpose of this investigation will be to take a deep look at some of the things that are unique to print language, in particular, to literary language. In addition I will explore some of the most prevalent ways that narrative has been or is being subsumed into new media (TV, Radio, and most importantly Computer technology). Given these factors I will then consider what will likely be the fate of our language, and ourselves as we are shaped by it, in an electronic age.
