Problems are dealt with in connection with the semantic analysis of some slang terms in marbles game. On this basis an attempt is made to reveal their etymology, whereby some universal tendencies in the development of the slang lexicon are pointed out. Also pointed out is the major role played by the caricature-parody turn in the evolution of youth slang, which in fact is its active (generative) centre creating ambivalence, enantiosemy, ambiguity, etc. Semantic analysis of the term абе is made, viewed in the sphere of the ‘food-money’ metaphor, and the development of this metaphor in French and in Bulgarian is followed.
