If I spoke your language as well as you speak English I would not be attempting to carry out research on communication in a massively predominantly English language environment.

It is a very peculiar point of view in a world as SL.

In my personal opinion, I prefer to strive to understand someone who misspelled that talk only to residents with my own language.

But that's just what I prefer .

Thankfully not.

Can you imagine how Local Chat would look if there was?

But you can by creating a gesture with the trigger as say the smiley face and then copy the msn emoticon to the "replace with" field in the gesture box then save and then you have it when you type the smile You can of course repeat this for all the emoticons that you want to and will this now start a craze

In your opinion, how you would evaluate how effective is the comunication between avatars in SL, knowing the limitations of the gestures, the chat, etc.

How would you measure the interactivity of two or more Avatars?

Oh I don't know ... perhaps by looking at the words they type?

Great idea.

I know you can type emotions in local chat like ^_^ and so on.

It would be nice to have to have insert button (like gestures list) by local chat area which brings up emotions so you can use them inworld.

I myself would rather not have them in SL. Why cant we use simple terms like  " I feel so happy " or" Gezzz I feel sad". It gets the point across  in my view

Since light travels faster than sound, isn't that why some people appear bright until you hear them speak?
