Abstract: The article deals with the issues of youth discourse in multilingual society. Youth discourse is an indicator of current cultural and linguistic degree of contemporary environment, and it is significant in predicting the nearest future development of the whole national language. Communication of young people is unique and not always comprehensive for the representatives of other age groups as youth speech reflects common interests, and expresses the consciousness of unity and alienation from other social institutions. The paper gives an example of interesting phenomenon of multilingualism in Kazakhstan, where youth speech is particular with mixture of three languages – Kazakh, Russian and English. In the paper we make discourse analysis of youth speech from the Internet site which demonstrates real-life language code-switching cases. Language history has proved that newly invented youth expressions and slang can be easily involved into the standard national language.
Keywords: youth discourse, discourse analysis, interference, multilingualism, code-switching, internet discourse
