In sociology, anthropology and cultural studies , a   subculture   is   a   group   of people   within   a   culture (whether distinct or hidden)   which   differentiates   them   from   the   larger culture to which they belong. The   study   of subcultures often consists of the study of symbolism attached to clothing , music and other   visible   affectations   by   members   of   subcultures, and also the ways in which these same symbols are interpreted   by   members   of the dominant   culture. Members of a subculture often signal their membership through a distinctive and symbolic use of style, which includes fashions , mannerisms, and argot (a secret language   used by various groups to prevent   outsiders   from   understanding   their conversations).
