Book Information

   

Title: Youngspeak in a Multilingual Perspective
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=P%26amp%3Bbns%20184
Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 184
Description:

Despite its potential influence on the standard language, there is still
relatively little written about the language of the young. This book gives
new insight into some important areas of their language, such as identity
construction reflected, for instance, in prosodic patterns and language
choice, the use of discourse markers and slang in a contrastive
perspective, the pragmatics of fixed expressions and the impact of English
on the teenage vernacular. Most of the articles are corpus-based, and all
represent naturally occurring spontaneous conversation. The book will be of
interest to linguists, university students and anyone interested in today's
adolescent language and language change.
