Studies in Slang and Slogans, with contributions from Nigeria, America, France, Poland and Indonesia, addresses the nature, form and function of the slangy items and slogans engaged in politics, computer-mediated communication, sports, the military, students’ informal interactions, transportation, advertising and general human interactions. The book centrally examines how human social-political experiences and encounters with digital technology constrain the choice of slang and slogans favoured in the focused domains, the varieties of these slang and slogans, and the impact of these on human socio-cognitive processes in society. Studies in Slang and Slogans, therefore, should be of great interest to general readers, scholars from diverse areas of academic concerns, politicians, internet users, students, government officials and advertisers.
