Abstract [en]

The aim of the essay is to show the plurality of slang. Just as there are many varieties of language in general, there are many different varieties of slang. It is important to elucidate this plurality, because when people fail to see the various features, they tend to judge the vocabulary unjustly. By looking at the groups of people where slang is frequent, it has been possible to see the different purposes slang actually fulfils. The analysis of Trainspotting,Bridget Jones's Diary and two teenage magazines reveals, among other things, that the slang items themselves exist on various "levels".
