Abstract

After reading a certain amount of works of Macedonian contemporary literature for young people, it becomes evident that there are works intended for children of a younger age as well as works for young adolescents. A more detailed analysis reveals that while in the first everything is subordinated to polite and correct expressions, in the works intended for young adolescents there is a corpus of words with pejorative meaning, which, unfortunately, are increasingly encountered in the everyday speech of our youth. Of course, this cannot be attributed to the presence of words with pejorative meaning in the literature, but rather to the fact that language and literature faithfully follow the changes in society. Accordingly, all the novels in which such words were recorded, can qualify as realistic novels in which the authors are turning to the lives of young people in the modern, turbulent living conditions. In such conditions, young people use words that can be heard in the street, jargon, slang, pejorative words, swear-words, curses, etc… Keywords: literature for children and youth, pejorative words
