Abstract EN

This study explores synchronous computer-mediated communication (CMC) among university- level EFL learners.

In essence, this paper tries to investigate how EFL learners at university level interact and hence how they enhance their communicative performance.

It examines the strategies adopted by those learners in categorizing their messages and processing their interaction structures.

It so attempts to provide a visualization on the coherence vs.

incoherence of message sequences among the participants in a CMC chatting.

To achieve the study, the researchers will adopt a discourse analysis model that may be suitable to materialize the assumptions.

Accordingly, the expected outcomes of this study might take account of the impact of CMC on the EFL students‟ communicative competence in using the language , besides the improvement of the EFL students' linguistic capacity in both lexical and grammatical aspects
