This paper tries to determine the signs of sub-culture at different genders and social stratums via the associations of 207 basic words in Turkish. Gender and social stratum differences have an impact on the life styles, and the perceptions, attitudes, behaviors, and language which are also shaped by those life styles. This study showed that the associations of 207 basic words express the characteristics of subcultures, life styles, and language use at different genders, and social stratums.
