  3. 3. The History of Slang “ The secret code of London youth” <ul><li>The topic we would like to explore is the use of slang in London, particularly by young people. We think this is interesting and relevant to young people around the same age as us, which would be our main demographic. As well as adults who are fascinated by the youth s growing informal speech. We hope to raise awareness to the origin of popular words and amend the social divide which has created negative views on London's urban youth, amidst the recent riots. </li></ul>
