What are the features of young people’s written and spoken communication? How is youth language situated in the context of multilingualism and language contact? What influence does communication in the new media have on the language use? What are the characteristics of the public discourse about youth language? In the three categories «language use and linguistic skills», «language use and identity», and «youth languages as global and local phenomena» these and other questions are discussed and new research perspectives are revealed. Moreover, the book is not only a documentation of the current state of affairs of German youth language research, but it also gives an insight into international research into the language of young people (in 15 European, American, and African countries altogether).
