K9. Measuring Internet Slang Style in Advertisement: Scale Development and Validation

Drawing on linguistics and stylistics theories, this paper introduces and conceptualizes the construct of Internet slang style (ISS) to describe characteristics of Internet slang. A dimensional ISS framework consisting of four dimensions (amiability, overtness, candor, and harshness) is proposed. The corresponding scale was developed and validated across five studies.
