Petra Matko, 2013, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: Language is an important means of communication and an integral part of each person’s identity. Different social groups use different language varieties such as slang, jargon and argot. This paper concentrates on slang, the language which is popular among the youth and whose vocabulary is a subject of constant changes. Slang is a language variety which the young people use for expressing their feelings and beliefs about society in a different way. It is a spoken language; however it can be found in written form in electronic messages, short messages, lyrics and on numerous social network sites. The main aim was to analyze the use of slang in English and Slovene lyrics in three chosen music genres: pop, rock and rap music. Slang and its characteristics are described in the theoretical part.
