This work offers a rhetorical analysis of hypertext resulting in a taxonomy for the elements of hypertext as they relate to literacy. It postulates a theory of cyberdiscursivity, which holds that the more instantaneous, widespread, and individual discursive practices are inherent in computer-mediated communication. It looks at the effect upon groups of like-minded people when cyberdiscourse is introduced, therefore attempting to offer an insight into how the computer transforms communication practice.
