Teen speak

I found a list that was produced nearly 3 years ago now, but it may still be of some use...I hear some of these words still used in schools. Click here to access the lexicon of teen speak (scroll down to find the list).

Any humorous stories to share? or things you think will be helpful to the community here?
It would be good to get some links to other blogs/websites that talk about the importance of language for young people. It's interesting reading Martin's entry on SEAL this week, as something we're doing in schools at the moment is highlighting the need for them to learn words to describe their emotions and spiritual experiences. I'll write more about this at another time and we're also doing our next podcast on SEAL and the spiritual and emotional literacy program we're running in schools in Luton.
