Has anyone ever noticed the differences between different countries emails? Well the author Eric Weiner apparently did, and he wrote his findings in an essay titled Eruo mail and Ameri mail . ( TLR) He starts out his essay by saying ” North America and Europe are two continents divided by a common technology : e-mail.” He later goes on to back up his statement by saying that Americans are a lot less formal in the way that they write their e-mails. Opposing that is the Europeans and their formality dealing with the electronic mailing system. He says that Americans tend to write e-mails the same way they talk, which is personal and, often times, severely chatty. Europeans on the other hand, tend to make their e-mails more formal in the sense that they write it as if it is an actual letter. According to Weiner there is no clear reason for this kind of severe difference in writing styles except for, possibly, the deep cultural differences that are inherent in the two continents. He also talks about the security measures of those continents, or the lack thereof when it comes to Europe. The American have apparently become increasingly paranoid about their e-mail accounts and the information that is in them. The Americans are also more sastidious when it comes to checking them. In my opinion Mr. Weiner has the right opinion in this instance. He makes a very valid point in the fact that Americans are more chatty, paranoid, and overall, very obsessive about, and in, their e-mails.
