The use of the language spoken by the adolescents in the television series Élite from Netflix : A study of young people’s attitudes (English)
Abstract [en]

Studying the use of language in television series is nothing new for Sociolinguistics studies. Tv-series copy the characteristics of a community so the audience identifies with the story and its characters. One of the elements copied is the use of language by this community. Tv-series so to speak, bring the use of language into every home and it can even cross frontiers between countries and create stereotypes of the use of language on an international level. This catches the interest of a lot of scientists, to perform studies based on this phenomenon and its contributions to the development of human language. This study has, within its limitations, observed the use of language by a group of youth in the Spanish tv-series Élite from the international platform Netflix. The main objective has been to study the attitudes of a group of young people towards some expressions used in the tv-series. To accomplish this, the study had to go through two phases. Firstly, and in order to select the expressions, there was a need to analyze the ones used in the series. The results from that analysis didn’t show big differences in how the youth from different socioeconomic status spoke. Secondly, a questionnaire was created. To limit the study, the expressions selected for the questionnaire were the most used ones by the group of young characters from the low socioeconomic status in the series. This meant that the informants were also going to be from a low socioeconomic status only. In summary, the results show how the expressions used in the television series Élite correspond with the preferences of the young informants that participated in the study. That means that the series had managed to copy the use of language of real youth. However, there was one expression which didn’t get a high frequency as the others in the analysis. Following the theory researched, that arouse a question of whether this expression will become a new linguistic trend thanks to the tv-series Élite.
