THE SPEECH OF TODAY'S TEENAGERS CHARACTERIZED IN TERMS OF THEIR CHOICE OF WORDS
Languages of publication
The speech of the coming generations can be criticized on a number of counts. Their difficulties of self-expression, their troubles with written communication, their articulation problems, the acceleration of their speech tempo are sadly experienced by teachers, and can be observed in everyday communicative situations. In this paper, we investigate the usage of words in, and stylistic characteristics of, teenagers' spontaneous conversation. We also try to find out what word formation processes they use preferentially, as well as how the language created by internet communication emerges in their oral and written utterances and what possible consequences all that may have.
