* {{Traveller}} gives several examples of this, sometimes including whole lists. Groundhog, flatlander, and if this troper remembers, dirtsider are terms for non-spacers.

* The forest-dwelling Le-Matoran from ''{{Bionicle}}'' have "Treespeak", a dialect similar to NewSpeak, that involves merging two words together, such as "bald-land" to refer to land with no obstructions, or "tree-high", to indicate that something is as high up as the treetops.

* Used by Judy Jetson in ''TheJetsons'' -- where all the future slang was made up of space terminology.

* In one of the many futures shown on ''TheSimpsons'', "Smell you later" has replaced "Goodbye" in common usage--to the extent that "Smell you later forever" makes sense.

* ''Westernanimation'{{Phantom 2040}}'' has a few slang terms derived from a rather prescient anticipation of how big the Internet would get. A common apparatus used to access information is the [[{{cyberspace}} Integrated Cybernetic Environment]], or [[{{fun with acronyms}} ICE]]. This logically leads to 'skating' (using the net), and even 'heat source' (cracking software).

* ''[[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Macross]]'' toys with it with the word "Deculture", originally a Zentradi swear word. By 2059, as shown in ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', it's become a common enough slang word that it's even used in advertising, though the meaning has changed, probably by in-universe MemeticMutation, to be used in positive contexts as well. The most accurate English phrase to "Deculture" would be "Oh God".

* Creator/LarryNiven's hero Louis Wu often uses "tanj" (There Ain't No Justice) as a swear. Tanj sees widespread use throughout the KnownSpace stories, as do a few other unique curses; Belters in particular are fond of swearing by Finagle and Murphy, and tend to see the flatlander habit of swearing by deities as rather odd and quaint.\\\

* Widely used in ''TheQuantumThief'' and its sequel, ''Fractal Prince'', though rather than slang, it's meant to represent new technical terminology that always pops up with new innovations. It rarely gets explicitly described, leaving the reader to deduce what a Gevulot is, what Gogols are, or how a Vir differs from a Realmscape. The matter is complicated even further by that some groups use different words for the same concept. The people of Sirr, for example, call Spimescape "Athar", and describe it in almost religious or magical terms.

* The ''Planet Pirates'' series by Creator/AnneMcCaffrey, Creator/ElizabethMoon and Creator/JodyLynnNye has "Muhlah!" or "Mullah!" where we'd use "God!" or "Christ!" While this is clearly some sort of religious figure (there's also "Thank Muhlah!" and "Muhlah knew..") further details are not provided. "Plasmic!" gets used once by a young boy as the equivalent of "cool!" or "awesome!"
