urban

Definition funny of Ebonics:

urbanA poor excuse for a failure to grasp the basics of english. When in doubt, throw an "izzle" sound in the middle of any word of just string random thoughts together and insinuate that they actually mean something. When backed into a corner, you can always claim that it has something to do with a sort of symbolism or is a defining trait that makes your race great, versus own up to the fact that it is essentially laziness at it's finest.

urbanPlim-plizzle, my nizzle, don' foget bouts tha six-fo, chuch, dawg up in da hood, chilly my grilly. fo sho.

urbanEbonics is really the study of the rules applied to turn English into some uneducated sounding pseudo-language whose purpose is for the most part to insult and denigrate "Whitey." Here is what I learned in Ebonics 1 :

urbani) In any English word with a contraction, eliminate the apostrophe and any letters after it. 1) Is it alright if I rollerskate through the campus ? English) Yes, it's alright Ebonics) It OK ii) In a word ending in "d," substitute "dt" or "oodt." English) That's all very fine... Ebonics) That all reeeal gooudt.... iii) In a word ending in "ore," eliminate everything after the first "o" and add an apostrophe. English) I won't tell you again, please shut the door. Ebonics) I ain tellin you no mo', shet de do' !! iv) For suffixes with 2 identical consonants followed by "er," eliminate the "er." English) That Negro was larger and was holding a pistol. Ebonics) Mah nigga was bigga had his fingah on yo' trigga. v) In general, most "er"s are dropped and replaced by "ah." English) Tower of Power Ebonics) Towah of Powah vi) However, in the case of a plural, "ers" is replaced by "az." English) Negroes Ebonics) niggaz Now, a brief poem : They go my niggaz all up in da hooudt, Niggaz be pimpin' just like dey shooudt, Leroy drive his Caddy right into a dee-itch 'Cause his punk-ass homey is too much of a bee-itch Sistah on the pipe she hit on da stem Homeboy got his ass in jail ageein' Got me a supakool layin' in da free-idge Niggaz be flyin' high off'n da bree-idge Sambo fucked up, he high on dat sherm Bustin up a cap hey cuz got de germ So you get the general idea...

urbanThe language of the gangstas and negroes.

urbanEbonics: "Yo G, you frontin me?" English: "Excuse me, my peer, are you attempting to influence me to engage in a violent action with you?" Ebonics: "You gots to git those Benjamins so you cin git dat bling-bling fo yo ride" English: "You need to get money so that you can get expensive accessories for your car."

urbanA "variation" of English entirely made up of slang and southern word shortenings. It is generally spoken in the "hood" (neighborhood) and has almost no defined syntactical structure. Also of note is the almost complete lack of conjugation of verbs ("I be", "she be", "thems be", etc) and the mixing of pronouns. When spoken in any educated circles, its usage usually screams "I am illiterate."
