Abstract

Powered by digital, hypertext has brought about changes in reading and writing in the information society. With its links, it enables navigation in the "ocean" of ideas, requiring adequate knowledge to navigate.  Incomprehension and textual abandonment are consequences that scholars report and that we need to discuss. About them, we highlight Lévy (2011), Marcuschi and Xavier (2010), Castells (2020), Schuab (2016), Schnneider and Carvalho (2018), important authors in the discussion about technology and education. In this paper, we focused on analyzing the need for the debate on hypertext in language teaching-learning with a bibliometric research, whose goal is to provide a broad mapping of a subject, serving as a support for new studies. We obtained, as a result, the idea that hypertext is an area of research evident in developed countries and in need of current research.
