Book Description:

"Teen Talk offers an exciting, thought-provoking, and engaging observation of the 'good, the bad and the lovely' aspects of youth language. Using a wide range of datasets from the Bergen Corpus of London Teenage Language to insights gained from kitchen table conversations with her own children, Tagliamonte forcefully demonstrates how the linguistic behaviour of young people offers fascinating insights into the dynamics of how linguistic systems can be reorganized from one generation to the next. If you manage to read just one book on this topic at any stage of your own life, make it this one."
