Abstract
One of the design features of language is creativity which can differentiate human beings from animals. Anti-language is a special form of language which generates from traditional society and language but different from them in some ways. Anti-language plays a role in creating and maintaining social structure through conversation as traditional language does but the social structure it maintains shares some special modalities and is very different from the traditional ones. As a special form of anti-language, Netspeak is very familiar these years and is developing rapidly with its special advantages. What’s more, some netspeak has been used in official websites such as China Daily. It is necessary for us to have a study on netspeak to figure out the basic information of the usage of netspeak in China as well as have in-depth knowledge of the fundamental state which can contribute to the research on anti-language in return.
