Abstract

In this paper I analyse Hungarian political slang, or slang as it is used in Hungarian politics, especially as it appears in the pro-refugee campaign of a recently created mock party, the Hungarian Two-tailed Dog Party. While the Hungarian government, during its campaign against the relocation of refugees, used very few slang or colloquial terms, the language of the Two-tailed Dog Party is rich in slang words and neologisms. The analysis is mostly based on data gathered on the Internet in 2016-17.
