Abstract

The use of 'street vernacular' and 'bad' language is now a familiar feature of classroom and corridor interactions in secondary schools. Uses selected examples to explore some aspects of the complex linguistic life of classrooms and argues for a more explicit understanding of teenage vernacular and the ways in which this can be managed by teachers.
