Phew. No easy, that one. With all that Whatsapp newspeakwrite which is mostly consisting of smileys and emoticons, older semesters like me are often overcharged. I tell you my daughter is writing a new language, and together with that Swiss German which includes a pseudo-balcanese accent my stepson utters now and which is so cool to them, at least for the males (supposed to sound tough), it's a combination that can often drive me nuts.
I mean, WE also had a youth slang, but it was at least halfway understandable for our parents, but nowadays it's like being on a TV quiz where one has to guess which word means what.
Ok, we had it a lot easier. Boy let hair grow, and he was the star of the pals in school and the focus of anger for the grown-ups. And if that now sexually undefineable biological existence listened to Black Sabbath's "Oh noooooooooo.......!" it was outright crazy or a criminal druggie starting its career.
Today's youth can do what they want, dress and behave like Ciley Myrus or Marilyn Manson (Cool combination btw.), eat only junk food, smoke dope in the bus or train and scream OMG with 120 decibels in their iShit in public transport endlessly - nobody notices anymore. What a frustrating life for the youth NOT to be noticed negatively and REALLY show the world that they are DIFFERENT from their parents ;-)
Which they aren't.
But they haven't noticed that yet. Takes a while.
I wait for the day when they start to invent new guttural sounds for 3 (e), @ and # for example. Or for ▒▓ :-)
