You'd probably have to date that list, as it appears be about 10 years behind the times. It's missing all references to social media for example, which breed rather strange terms that are flooding contemporary American English. ("Oh ... my ... gawd, you're so defriended for posting this!")

I would suggest urbandictionary for a rather humorous and surely creative terms.

It very much follows the phrases of the movie "Clueless", so I would consider these idioms typical teenage lingo of the end-90s.

That's exactly what I thought. I was familiar with most phrases - and I know them mostly from movies and some contemporary books. If they were more recent, I probably wouldn't know any of them.

Valley Girl English dates back to 1970's California, but it has apparently mutated to become something even more meaningless!

Valspeak
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Valspeak is a common name for an American sociolect, originally of Los Angeles, California, in particular Valley girls. This stereotype, which originated in the 1970s, became a national fad for a certain period. Many phrases and elements of Valspeak, along with surfer slang and skateboarding slang, are stable elements of the California English dialect lexicon, and in some cases wider American English (such as the widespread use of "like" as a hedge). Elements of valspeak can now be found virtually everywhere English is spoken, particularly among young native English speakers. The language has gradually become symbolic and is increasingly becoming unrelated to its original meaning.[1]

The term "Valley Girl" and the Valley manner of speech was given a wider circulation with the release of a hit 1982 single by Frank Zappa entitled "Valley Girl", on which Moon Zappa, Frank's fourteen-year-old daughter, delivered a monologue of meaningless phrases in "valspeak" behind the music. This song, Frank Zappa's only Top 40 hit in the United States, popularized phrases such as "grody to the max". Some of the terms used by Moon were not actually Valley phrases, but were surfer terms instead (such as "tubular" and "gnarly"). But due to the song's popularity, some of the surfer phrases actually entered the speech of real Valley teens after this point. The Los Angeles surfing subculture, on the other hand, did not generally begin using the Valley terms, and in fact often despise users of the terms.

One of the earliest appearances of Valspeak and the Valley Girl stereotype on television was through the character of Jennifer DiNuccio, played by Tracy Nelson in the 1982-83 sitcom, Square Pegs. According to an interview with Nelson included on the 2008 DVD release of the series, she developed the character's Valspeak and personality prior to the Zappa recording becoming popular.[2]

Valspeak is used heavily in the 1995 film Clueless and quite a lot in In the Army Now, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, and Wayne's World. The character of Tiffany Blum-Deckler in MTV's Daria also uses Valspeak. Shaggy from the Scooby-Doo universe is also known for using Valspeak, as well as Snake from The Simpsons.
