Abstract

It is obviously seen that some special groups within a cultural tradition produce, for various reasons and most of the time depending on their needs, special communication by giving their own particular meanings to the general words in language. These special languages, which can be referred as required-langauge, may come up by turning into slang, jargon and secret languages. Transformations of general words through various social reasons might sometimes cause to make the differentiation of the words as a term or a unit in the general language difficult to describe.
