Abstract

Teenagers play an important role in the development of slang words. Words that were once considered very harsh when spoken in public were now common among teenagers. This study used a qualitative method with a descriptive approach. The main benefit of the results of this study was to provide knowledge about the development of teenage slang today so that educators and parents can further encourage their children to use language that is good and has positive nuances so that they can create a good language culture in social life. Based on the research findings, the words anjay, anjas, anjir, anjrit, jing/njing, and nying are derived from the root word ‘anjing’ (dog) which were softened by sound. Based on the results of the analysis, the seven slang words were often used by adolescents to express admiration, surprise, and resentment or anger
