We have analyzed the following main problems: theoretical aspects of the concept of “slang”, special aspects of the study of this issue by modern linguists, the use of slang in business discourse. We have made conclusions about the compositional, structural, lexical, and semantic features of the business language, and also analyzed the role of English business slang.
