Query:   Hi,
I am preparing a masters degree in psycholinguistics, and I want to apply it on the language of drug addicts. In my thesis, I want to discuss the words (or lexicons) used by drug addicts among each other, that is to say the words invented or the words that do have meaning but they use in different context. My aim is that this would help in the therapy process as it will enhance interaction between the patient and the psychologist. I just need some guidance and someone who is familiar with the field of psycholinguistics to give me some advice and discuss what I have on my mind regarding this matter. I will really appreciate your help as I am running out of time.
