Subject: Teen slang (esp. Southern)
I am not a linguist so I turn to you all for help. I am a
student who happens to have an interest in finding
information about common slang used by today's teenagers,
particularly those in the South.
I am working on a project where this information would be
quite helpful, but I'm not sure where to turn for
Are there any dictionaries, books, newsletters or papers
that discuss, or list, slang for the modern teen? (I can't
use any old works that may discuss slang from the 80s or
valley talk or any that focus primarily on, say, NYC
If there aren't currently any works available, is there
anyone in particular who studies this topic that could be of
assistance to me?
Any help would be nice. Thanks in advance.
