Abstract: Šiais modernizacijos laikais, kai medijos tampa neatsiejama gyvenimo dalimi, technologijų pažanga įgalina pagrindinių jų vartotojų – jaunimo – kalbinių nuostatų transformaciją. Jaunimo kalba sparčiai kinta, tačiau jos tyrimai padeda numatyti tos kaitos pobūdį ir norminti kalbą atsižvelgiant į ateityje tikėtinus lingvistinius pakitimus, todėl svarbu tirti jauno amžiaus žmonių kalbinę raišką. Darbo tikslas – ištirti jaunimo kalbos vartoseną populiariausiame Lietuvoje socialiniame tinkle „Facebook“ surinktus pavyzdžius lyginant su bendrine lietuvių kalba ir analizuojant bei aprašant lingvistiniu aspektu – nagrinėjant leksinius, žodžių darybos, gramatinius, t. y. morfologinius ir sintaksinius, dėsningumus. Tyrimo išvadose apibrėžiami esminiai jaunimo internete vartojamai kalbai būdingi leksiniai, morfologiniai, sintaksiniai ir semantiniai ypatumai, nepastebimi bendrinėje kalboje, taip pat tik tiriamoje socialinio tinklo svetainėje taikomi kalbiniai aspektai.
The youth language is considered irregular, substandard language variation and is rigorously evaluated by language specialists in Lithuanian language standardization tradition. However, any kind of living language can be seen as a linguistic construct of the community, in which the new identity of human expression appears, that is why it is important to investigate both phonic and written language. Due to the intensive development of communication technology and its accessibility to huge part of the society the systems of written communication are becoming used very widely, especially among adolescents. Lithuania 's most popular social network, based on studies and surveys, is the web page “Facebook”. There browse 1.2 million of Lithuanian population in different regions in the “Facebook”. As a result, it is appropriate to examine the language of adolescents that is so common to this medium. Master thesis “Youth Language Usage in Social Network “Facebook”. Sociolinguistic Aspect” aims to investigate youth’s language usage in the most popular Lithuania social network “Facebook”, compare the collected samples with standard Lithuanian and analyse and describe in the linguistic aspect - the lexical examination, word formation, grammar, i. e. morphological and syntactic regularities. The Internet medium is formed by the same people using it, for that reason there appears a unique language. In examination of conversations of adolescents in the social website it was discovered that the public written language usage was increasingly coinciding with the usual colloquial one: it is often written incorrectly, disconnectedly, while communicating young people create new words using a variety of word-formation means, borrowing specific words from different styles of other languages, creating distinctive expressions, changing the established spelling, punctuation rules. The conclusions of the study define the essential lexical, morphological, syntactic and semantic features of specific adolescents’ online language usage, that is not noticeable in standard language, as well as language aspects applied only in the social networking in the target. In the future, it is foreseen virtual communication will be even more popular, according to that it is important to take into account the fact that the medium is not only changing the life style but also expression of the written language, and evaluate emerging linguistic gaps caused by virtual communication and descending population’s Lituanistic education level. The results will help for linguists and educators to evaluate the written language of contemporary adolescents and take the necessary change in the normalization and development process and anticipate the expected linguistic environment. In addition, conversations may be evaluated by the researchers not only in linguistic but also in psychological and social aspects.
