The Use of New Slang Words and New Slang Expressions in Informal Speech
Halmstad University, School of Humanities (HUM).

Abstract [en]
The aim of the study was to observe the use of new slang words and new slang expressions in informal American and English speech. As research material two American talk shows were used. The concluding research questions were to categorise the findings and then to see if that could disclose something concerning new slang words and expressions. The categorisation involving the new slang words were done by means of Yule's word-formation process. Regarding the expressions Hudson's fixedness continuum was applied. Besides contributing with new slang words and expressions the study reached some interesting observations. A most notable observation was the fact that two new word-formation processes could be documented.
