What is youth slang and where does it come from?
Teenage slang (slang) is a dense forest for a parent. Even if a trusting relationship has been built with the child and he is ready to explain the meaning of the words used, all the same, mom and dad do not “boil” in this all the time. Unlike a student. And words that are not used on a regular basis are forgotten.
At one time we also used jargon – phrases that irritated our parents, but were favorably perceived by peers. Expressions popular with the younger generation are an indicator of a living, developing language. You can rage as much as you like that borrowings from English appear in Russian speech, but this is inevitable.
Slang as such is not lack of culture, but an integral part of any language. Adolescents are a separate group that uses their own words, understandable only to them, for several reasons:
- This is an opportunity to fit into the company, pass for “one’s own”.
- This is part of a teenage rebellion, rejection of old norms, including in the language.
- This is a contrast between parents and the older generation.
- This is a desire to remake the world for yourself, to make it less boring and one-sided.
- This is a way of self-expression, a creative zest, a kind of humor.
- This is an opportunity to name phenomena for which there are no analogues in Russian.
Slang is constantly changing. It seems to an adult that it is changing even too quickly. New words appear so often that it is impossible to remember them! But this is just a difference in the perception of the passage of time in a child, adolescent and adult.
In fact, youth words come into life extremely organically and in a timely manner – with the emergence of a new phenomenon or the emancipation of society. Especially the process is accelerated by the Internet.
Linguistics as a science recognizes the great importance of slang in the culture of speech. It enriches the language. Jargons appear in everyday life in three ways:
- from a foreign language directly or through games (gaming slang);
- through word creation (invention of word forms);
- through abbreviation and abbreviation.
Now you will read the dictionary and understand what it is about and why you need this knowledge in everyday life.
Dictionary of the modern schoolboy and student
We will try to present not only the fashionable “term” and its origin, but also the fullest possible meaning.
Most popular words and phrases
You must have heard these words – they are used everywhere by teenagers from 10 years and older.
The word comes from Russian “aggression” or English angry, which translates as angry. Denotes “to be angry, to demonstrate aggressiveness, irritation.” Can be used for parents: “Mother and father got so aggro about my triplet, like the end of the world!” or “Ma, do not be aggro, I will clean the room tomorrow!”
Also used when communicating with peers: “Hare aggro, bro, why are you so bombed • Butthurt caught •”
Derived from the English bro, that is, brother (brother). The designation is expensive, a close person who is “like a brother.” In fact, it is used not only to address your best friend, but also in relation to just acquaintances, as “dude” used to say in a youth party: “Hey, bro, skip to the locker room, I’m in a hurry!”
- Grandfather inside
This is how the expression dead inside was written in Russian letters (read as “dead inside”), which means “dead inside” or “dead inside”. About 15 years ago, the goth and emo subcultures were popular – such a description fits them as accurately as possible. Now it is used by teenagers both in the literal sense and with irony: “Oooh, you are sad after breaking up with a tyanochka as if you were some kind of insider grandfather.”
- Easy, easy
Everything is simple here: the phrase “easy” came from the English easy and retained its original meaning – “simple / simple, easy / easy”. Usage example: “I’ll do my homework quickly, in general, in easy!”
- Imba, imba
Derived from the English noun imbalance, shortened to imba. Means “imbalance, unbalanced”. Previously used only to indicate the wrong decision in a computer game: “Download all the perks, otherwise it will be imba!” Now it gradually passes into reality with the same meaning.
- Crash, paint
It came from the English crash in love (changed fall in love – fall in love). Crush is a person who is in love with, whom you adore, but hopelessly, unrequitedly. Crash is generally translated as an accident, that is, literally, “to face love that ends badly.” Usually used in relation to a person who does not know about feelings: “My crush is Dima from 10A, I’m even afraid to approach him!”
- Krinzh, krinzh
From English cringe (literally – to cringe). Shame, embarrassment for another, makes someone ashamed of the speaker. In another way – “Spanish shame” (there is such a term). “Ma, I won’t go to the dacha, what will they say about me, this is a complete cringe!” or “Bro, what kind of cringe gear are you wearing • Full facepalm.”
From English lol – laughing out loud. Literally – to laugh out loud, a very funny joke. Actually, lol is a replacement for the typical “ha-ha-ha”, rather, an interjection denoting a reaction to a joke. Sometimes used with irony: “Uh-huh, lol” in a joke about the speaker.
- Rofl, rofl
Short for rolling on the floor laughing. Literally: “rolling on the floor with laughter”, laughing hard, the reaction is stronger than lol. Or a mockery, a mockery: “Are you mocking me • I won’t go there” in the meaning of “you’re mocking •”.
- Tilt, tilt
Fantasizing with negative/positive emotions after winning/losing, when a person gets carried away, he gets angry at other players, at his decisions and at the whole game. Or, on the contrary, he rejoices at a successful move, a decision, not noticing anything around.
From English trigger (literally “trigger”). What triggered the negative emotion. It is used not only in slang by young people, but also by psychologists: “Mom’s words became the trigger of his feelings of guilt”, “Deuce is just my trigger, I immediately think that I’m a sucker”, “Why are you so triggered by his words •”
- Thrash, trash
From the English trash, which translates as “garbage, trash.” The word took on a figurative meaning: horror, garbage, complete rubbish. Most often used in the meaning of “kapets”: “This is complete trash!”
- Too much
Here, too, everything is simple: tou mach is English too mach, written in Russian letters. The meaning is the same as in a foreign language – too much, too much. “Don’t you think that a tattoo in the entire back is that match •”, “Quarrel with the ancestors in such a way as to leave home is that match, bro.”
- Chill, chill, chill, chill
From English chill (literally – coolness). It means the action or process itself – do not strain, rest in a passive way, lie down, “batonize”. The opposite of active recreation.
— What are you doing here• What is so boring•
– We are chilling, while without movement, after all, not a rave.
Separately, we list the words that are not usually used by a teenager in everyday life, but they are associated with a large layer of his reality – games on a computer or on a phone. However, they also penetrate into everyday speech.

What should parents do about teenage slang?
Definitely do not scold or punish for using such words. It is important for a child in puberty to feel that he belongs to a community, a group. This is an important process of separation, separation from parents. If the use of words and slang expressions is situational – it’s okay, the parent can even support the conversation.
However, don’t try to speak slang like teenagers. This looks rather ridiculous and causes a teenager not acceptance, but rejection. If a daughter or son constantly speaks only their own, incomprehensible adult language, this is already disrespect for the family way of life, home life.
Either the excessive distance of a teenager, the desire to completely close himself from his parents. In this case, it would be useful to visit a family psychologist.
In this case, it is necessary to enrich the language of your child, to speak clearly and understandably yourself, it is interesting that the child would like to repeat. You can arrange family trips to the museum, theater, watch movie masterpieces (according to age). That is, to bring a rich language into his life, to expand the range of possibilities for verbal expression.
And it is worth remembering that the use of slang, the need to join a group and find support from peers is a temporary period of personality maturation.
