Next

In his 1962 dystopian novel A Clockwork Orange Anthony Burgess created a slang type language called Nadsat. The language is a mix of modified Slavic and Russian as well as words simply invented by the author himself. Nadsat is basically English, with some transliterated words from Russian. It also contains influences from Cockney and the King James Bible, some words of unclear origin, and some words that Burgess invented.Terms such as droog meaning friend or Bog for God are occasionally still used by college students who wish to annoy or mystify those around them. A comprehensive Nadsat lexicon lists the terms used in the book with their origins.
