A clear expression of the social reorganization reflexes, characteristic of the early 1990s, was a "jargon explosion" in speech. The emergence of a large number of words and jargons and their use in various social groups were a result of radical changes in society. This case may be one of the tools for alternative teaching of the history of the 1990s. There are attempts to compile dictionaries of the slang of that time. We have prepared a small sample of dictionaries, which register the emergence of new words of the transformation period.
