dc.description.abstractThe use of argot by a specific group helps to keep them separate from society as a whole. Because only specific words are different or used differently, it is possible to see, through the use of argot, how language changes through time. Some words remain in fashion for a short time, others change meaning or form and new words keep cropping up. I am interested here in the use of argot by a small group of Calgarians who, for lack of a better term, I'll call punks or punk rockers.en_US
