Abstract:

Teenage talk is fascinating, though so far teenage language has not
been given the attention in linguistic research that it merits. The
dearth of investigations into teenage language is due in part to under
representation in language corpora. With the Bergen Corpus of London
Teenage Language (COLT) a large corpus of teenage language has become
available for research. The first part of Trends in Teenage Talk gives
a description how the COLT corpus was collected and processed; the
speakers are presented with special emphasis on the recruits and their
various backgrounds; ending with a description what the COLT teenagers
talk about and how they do it. The second part of the book is devoted
to the most prominent features of the teenagers' talk: "slanguage";
how reported speech is manifested; a survey of non-standard
grammatical features; the use of intensifiers; tags; and interactional
behaviour in terms of conflict talk.
