It is easy, and plus some people want to use slang so that their parents or anyone else doesn't know what they are talking about. It is the same with txt mssgng (text messaging) as people are so lazy that they cn't even use vwls anymore!

It is also indicative of a poor vocabulary and difficulty of sef-expresion. Slang has a place in social situations , but if you want a good job, learn and use proper English in the workplace.

I'm from Scotland. Slang is a part of our culture. Well..to most people who live in other countries we speak slang..we're really just speaking Scottish dialect to some extent, the majority of it is slang though.

>i agree i use slang alot and cuz off that its effctin my English im usin it now cuz im used to it but its come into everyday ppls lives and yes i will carry on usin it as a matter of habit tho i shudnt !!!!!

Also it is used by teenagers to act like they are cool! It draws attention to people and it is like another language which adults can't read or understand!
Bc they don't know how to say the right words!

Is slang vulgar?

Some slang terms are vulgar, especially when they refer to the genitals or to acts like having sex or eliminating waste. Not all slang is vulgar, though. Usually, slang is not used in formal or business situations because it is casual. People who use slang in every situation are often thought of as less educated than people who can use formal language in the right situation.
