Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TerraIgnota'':
** The Utopians use slang that sounds like it's been taken straight out of a sci-fi story instead of an actual unique language like the other Hives use. Fitting, since they're basically the world's speculative fiction nerds organized into a nation. Mycroft's favorite is "superprosthesis" for exceptionally useful tools.
** Society in general has developed a line of slang words surrounding their revised idea of a family unit, the bash', which does not consist of related/married people anymore, but of friends/like-minded individuals who set up their own households and rear any children they might have together. This has produced words like ba'sibs and ba'pas (siblings and parents, respectively), all based on the japanese word for 'home', [[JapanTakesOverTheWorld i-basho]].

* The ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' has a few of these such as "Ghoul" (humans mutated from excessive radiation) and "[[VideoGame/Fallout4 scavver]]" (short for "scavenger", a term for people who loot Pre-War buildings). "Scavanger" and it's Boston shortening are seen as derogatory so the term "Prospector" is the more polite term.

* ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}} TranshumanSpace'' occasionally dabbles in this, sometimes to the extent that some people ''in the 22nd century'' aren't entirely certain what the slang words mean. From [[http://mail.sjgames.com/pipermail/teralogosnews/2003/000024.html Teralogos News]]:

* How WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack got his name; when he arrived in the future he crash landed in the path of a giant crushing robot and had to fight his way out, impressing a trio of street punks that happened to be nearby. "Jack" is the equivalent of "dude" that they toss about, and the samurai takes it up as an alias in his battle against Aku.

* In an interesting past-slang example, the TabletopGame/{{Planescape setting}} for ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' (And the PlanescapeTorment PC game) had Planar Cant, largely derived from old English thieves' jargon and Cockney rhyming slang. There's a whole sodding dictionary of it [[http://mimir.net/cant/cant2.html here.]]
