Slanguistics

noun; blending
The study of human speech, specifically as it relates to informal vocabulary composed of new and arbitrarily changed words. Jake probably wanted to describe the language of rapper Snoop Dogg, which is basically turning in to its own language. Thus, because of the influence Snoop Dogg has had on him, he came up with the nonce word slanguistics to describe the new rap language. Moreover, the word slang essentially contains the beginning of the word linguistics, with an “a” replacing the “i,” making the two words easy to blend in the spoken language.
 
I love Snoop Dogg’s slanguistics.
Etymology : slanguistics. Blending of slang + linguistics
