Slanguage & Cultural Value: It’S Lit to Say It - How Mainstream Slang Affect Online Wom

This paper examines the effects of using mainstream, popular slang in online WOM (e.g., “These Jordans are lit!”). We hypothesize that relative to non-slang equivalents (great), the perceived cultural value embedded in slang terms will increase consumers’ evaluations of the message and product. We test this hypothesis in four experiments.
