Born in the gutters and sewers - a marriage of grunts, curses, flamboyant insults, merciful shorthand, and the evolution that fifty years in the New Carthage ghetto will give you - Street-Talk is the language of the poor and downtrotten. Uniquely a New Carthage phenomenon, as the class discrepancies piled on, the language took on a life of its own. By 2010, Street-Talk shared almost no similarities with English. It's the language of the old parts of New Carthage - the parts that Corporate money hasn't touched yet. And it's unabashedly aggressive and unique in its rhythms, cadences and vocabulary.
