Ah, ok. It looked like rapper slang, but there were a few things in there I've never heard before (and I am a guy who is up on his rapper slang... um, dawg).

Yeah well it's influenced by that kind of stuff.

Nadsat is the slang/language they use in 'A Clockwork Orange'.

I don't see what it has to do with Nadsat other than that they're both types of slang.

A youth gang culture with its own style of dress and its complex slang/patois/etc partially drawn from other nations/languages (as with Russian etc in nadsat). I think this is pretty much what Anthony Burgess predicted which had not really existed in this way before.

I think it is its cultural strength or how defined it is that characterises it which is how it is similar to nadsat and the youth culture dexcribed in 'A Clockwork Orange'.

To be fair, the beatniks were a youth cult that had their own slang that predated the writing of A Clockwork Orange. So it didn't so much anticipate as reflect their emergence. the beatniks weren't a criminal subculture though, however lots of criminal gangs used slang terms before A Clockwork Orange. Cockney rhyming slang came out of just that world and lots of words used by Spivs did too. They were codes used to confuse the police and 'outsiders' so they wouldn't know what was actually being said.

Yeah you're right but I still feel that what's going on now is really what Anthony Burgess was writing about. I still think it's different to the examples you give. For example the characters on 'A Clockwork Orange' and the people withing the kind of culture I'm talking about that is around now don't speak like that to confuse people I don't think. The slang is more developed; what they are speaking is further removed from how the most people would speak than those other similar examples. And I think that though it isn't so specifically used to confuse outsiders it is used to separate themselves from adults or other people so in a way it is used to confuse these people but just to separate themselves from them, not for any specific criminal aim. It shows a kind of alienation or disclocation from the majority or socety that these youths in 'Clockwork' and today seem to experiencing.

I think you're right in that Nadsat semed to have no motivation other than as a separate language. In that sense though it's not really any different from hipster speak, developed by the beats.

On a far more important note though, i saw Sarah Harding walk down my street the other day.

Close but no cigar! That's brilliant though and makes it more likely Nicola will be around. Did you stop her and have a chat about Nicola's future solo career?

Maybe what really defines it (if I'm right) is how extreme it is in its separation from everyday language and therefore people.

Yeah, I've seen Cheryl Cole a couple of times too. I think Ashley has a place near me, so the chance of seeing Roberts is quite high.

I have to admit that Harding looked really nice.

Harding is gorgeous really, I just think she looks a bit common.
