Meeting Description:

Since the 1970s, the linguistic analysis of youth languages has become a
common subject within different areas of research of oral and written
language use of adolescents. The analyses do not focus on an idealized
speaker, but on interlocutors within their specific life-worlds. Using different
speaking styles young people communicate various identities, memberships
and situative affiliations. Critical lexicography, ethnography of
communication, stilistics, socio-linguistics, semantics and recently also
research related to computer-mediated communication constitute various
strands of research on youth languages which will play a role at the
conference in Freiburg 2011.

We welcome abstracts for papers that cover aspects within all areas of
youth languages research. These include, but are not limited to, the
following topics:

-Sociolects and cultural stylization
-Social networks
-Youth languages and media
-Youth languages in comparison
-Applied youth language research

The following plenary speakers have kindly accepted an invitation:
