Teenage talk is fascinating, though so far teenage language has not been given the attention in linguistic research that it merits. The dearth of investigations into teenage language is due in part to under representation in language corpora. With the Bergen Corpus of London Teenage Language (COLT) a large corpus of teenage language has become available for research. The first part of Trends in Teenage Talk gives a description how the COLT corpus was collected and processed; the speakers are presented with special emphasis on the recruits and their various backgrounds; ending with a description what the COLT teenagers talk about and how they do it. The second part of the book is devoted to the most prominent features of the teenagers’ talk: ‘slanguage’; how reported speech is manifested; a survey of non-standard grammatical features; the use of intensifiers; tags; and interactional behaviour in terms of conflict talk.

Trends in teenage talk gives an informative account of the main features and developments in the language of London teenagers in the early 1990s. It is a fascinating and entertaining book on a fascinating research object: the language of children on their way to become adults”
“The book presents brilliant description on the generation, processing, and analysis of the Corpus of London Teenagers (COLT). Many new findings and their subsequent introspective analysis have generated interesting insights about the London teenagers in general, and their linguistic skills in particular. To attain this, the investigators have deployed an intelligent method for data collection both from formal and informal speech sequences, and used a method to process and analyzes the whole corpus to arrive at the final outputs not known before.”
