From my own personal experience, I think adolescents, as they grow older, eventually start to find their own identity, relationships, and groups goes hand in hand with their ability to separate from their parents. They want to be independent and start doing their own thing. What better place to start doing it than the internet, considering that a lot of parents seem to be computer illiterate. The fascinating thing about the internet is that, it’s a place where adolescents feel like they can fulfill their needs of a pioneering, adventurous spirit.

Words, too, play their part (363).” Growing up, my parents always told me to read so that I may have a extended vocabulary so that I can grow up to be a good ,well rounded ,citizen and never curse. But nowadays I see little kids running their mouths off and using words such as, faggot, f*cker, or even sh*t hands. In result I am in shock and awe to what these kids are exposed to and in result saying what they are saying and a lot of the language probably comes from households that they live in, or from their peers.

Children should not use language that they are too young for cause it may get them into trouble.

defines slang as “words and phrases in common colloquial use, but generally considered in some or all of their senses to be outside the Standard English” (Brook, 1974). This definition brings attention to two important aspects of slang: first that slang sprung from the spoken and not written language and second, it is concerned with expressions and vocabulary. Slang has been around for many decades and “is as old as human speech” (Green, 2003). Yet this colloquial language is usually taken for granted and considered “some kind of adolescent disease that everyone eventually grows out of” (Burridge, 2004).
