The Mainichi Daily News have published a peki-peki article on Japanese teen slang. Apparently police guidance counsellors are having so much trouble with understanding what hip teenagers are saying that they're recording what is said word for word and have compiled a manual to help them translate what is said.
Not only is this article an interesting read because of Japanese youth (yuusu) speak, but also because it explains some fascinating information about the way Japanese language can be used. If you're reading this and you still don't know what peki-peki means, then you should be reading the article! ^_-
