Linguistic studies of youth language in adolescents are a subject matter of sociolinguistics which, for its part, explores certain social and cultural conditions. This sphere of interest incorporates the following lexical and lexicographical issues and also some pragmalinguistic aspects, such as ways of greeting, supportive reactions to conversations, interjections, etc. The formation of new words and phrases in the vocabulary of youngsters has aroused great interest from the perspective of sociolinguistics to highlight the topicality of social role and age, and the interrelation between gender and language.
