A word about Nadsat: The word comes from the Russian ending for the numbers from eleven to nineteen, approximately the ages of the people who speak it.
The large number of Russian words in Nadsat is probably due to the influence of the Cold War at the time of the book's writing; it is because of Russian propaganda and subliminal penetration techniques that the teens speak this way.
Burgess, in his introduction to the 1986 edition, says that, "Nadsat...was meant to muffle the raw response we expect from pornography." (x) The intellectual effort of translating is intended to distance the reader from the violence.

 SparkNotes: A Clockwork Orange: Part One, Chapter 1
Nadsat, the teenage slang that Alex and his droogs speak, represents a pastiche of languages: a mixture of Russian, Cockney English, childish slang, and Burgess’s own coinages.
The use of nadsat initially makes understanding A Clockwork Orange quite difficult and turns the opening pages of the novella into a highly disorienting experience.
In Alex’s hands—or rookers, as he calls them—blood becomes “krovvy,” to hit becomes “tolchock,” and rape becomes “ultra-violence.” Even the word good becomes sinister in nadsat: drawn from the Russian world for good, kharasho, the nasdat translation of the word is “horrorshow.”
