What is slang vocabulary

Before you consider an example of jargon, you should deal with what constitutes this terminology. So, these are the words that are used only in a particular social group. They can be combined in one profession, profession, interests, age, common views, etc. in Other words, the jargon in the Russian language is a completely separate speech that can be understood only by certain people. And, based on the fact that social groups today, there are a great many, and lingo, respectively, are also thriving.

Types of slang

It Should be noted that today, an example of jargon can be found in almost any field. They arise in almost any team that is moderately stable. For example, you can watch the jargon in the speech of schoolchildren, students, soldiers, musicians, athletes, alcoholics, criminals, etc. As you can see - social "spread" is large enough. Needless to say, jargon it is safe to call even the expression of the intelligentsia - and it will be right. After all, their expressions are understandable only to them, and they were formed not on an empty place. So all right.

Popular words

Many people do not even know that they use slang words. They have become so ingrained in our lives that have become quite normal and acceptable expressions, and we say it without thinking. Take as an example the speech of pupils or students. The word "gym", "steam", "physical", "stepha", "annoying", "clear", "not cut", etc. - all this we hear everyday and understand the meaning of these expressions.

However, there is the word "stronger". We are talking about the jargon of people related to the criminal sphere. Or, as it is called, "thug". Perhaps the most common word from this area is a "zone". It exactly everyone has heard of. It means, as you could already understand, jail. By the way, in fairness it should be noted that thieves and criminal slang is the richest of all. This is really a separate language. "Luck" (good luck), and "Kent" (friend), Olive (bullet), "Kibernet" (angry), "Gigue" (desperate) - these words are still many. Should not go deeply into their meaning - and to understand that "language" this is really difficult.

slang in the Russian language


It is Worth noting that slang, examples of which were discussed above, differ in some features. No matter what field they belong to, they share one thing - a high level of expressiveness. A jargon appeared due to the fact that it was necessary to invent a new word, successfully describing a particular situation (or person). When there is no standard expressions that would pass all the emotional degree of delight or disapproval. It should be emotional - this is the main feature of jargon. For example, the phrase "What's the impact?", uttered with appropriate intonation, sounds a lot more serious than "What are you doing?". For a vivid example of jargon.

This vocabulary is a lot more variability and mobility. Also the jargon fairly quickly die - they are replaced by other, new expressions. For example, youth slang 60 years almost disappeared today, young people talk in a completely different way.

Formation of slang

So, for some reason, there are such expressions - it is clear, however, how they are formed? Is actually very simple. The first way is by borrowing. For example, in our modern language the word "man" (man, man), the "fan" (fan, pokloni), "people" (people, society), etc. As you might guess, these words are taken from the English language.

More often just take up and rethink some people's word. For example, the word "buzz" - it means "to drink". Why this expression? Because it very aptly emphasizes the duration of the process.
There is Also another popular method, which consists in the derivation. There is such a word as "baldet" (to have fun). Hence the slang "baldie" (pleasure). And such examples are many.

Slang has always been and will continue to exist. This vocabulary all the time interacts with public language, "snatching" of certain expressions, and transforming them in his own way. The most important thing is to know the extent of the use of such words. You shouldn't do that too often litter their speech with such expressions. Otherwise, the purity of our mighty Russian language will have to forget, if everything goes on the jargon.
