New Slang!

Una de las peores cosas en inglés, o en cualquier idioma, es cuando las personas mayores usan términos y frases de la jerga para tratar de sonar como gente más joven.

Esto se llama «bajarse con los niños».
Según el periódico británico The Independent, en Estados Unidos hay un anciano profesor de sociología que mantiene una hoja de cálculo con todas las palabras de la jerga que usan sus estudiantes.

Aparentemente el profesor no usa las frases él mismo, pero guarda la hoja de cálculo para que pueda entender de qué hablan sus estudiantes cuando usan la jerga.

New Slang!

One of the worst things in English, or any language, is when older people use slang terms and phrases to try and sound like younger people.

This is called “getting down with the kids”.
According to the UK newspaper, the Independent there is an elderly sociology professor in the United States who keeps a spread sheet of all the slang words his students use.

Apparently the professor does not use the phrases himself, but keeps the spread sheet so he can understand what his students are talking about when they use slang.
Here are some of the examples:
