If you're a grammar nazi, I suggest you put what is in my signature in yours. Just copy the image location, then surround it with [img] tags.

Bal doesn't have bad grammar does he? Well, not that often. He's average....not a 1337 speaker, not a grammar Nazi.

Regardless, his grammar isn't bad and is pretty decent for someone who learned it as a second/third language.

It's not mine technically either. But I was born in an English speaking country...so I think it counts.

So points for ignorance should be awarded.

However, you touched on an interesting idea in linguistics: the inner city language "ebonics" is not a bastardization of English but is actually its own language. It just doesn't really have a codified writing or stable set of rules for speaking.

If it isn't a bastardization of English then it's most certainly a bastardization of something else.

I should restate then. Originally, it was a bastardization of English, but then it became a language all its own.

Like how English is a thief of a language. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Thief --> Bastard: English ---> Ebonics.

HOW COULD YOU SAY THAT TO A LOLCAT?!?!!? D:


I can tolerate leetspeak. I actually find it quite funny that, while I am browsing icanhascheezburger.com, onlookers take about x8 longer to read the image than me Razz

Btw, acronyms aren't a bad way to type. Why would you say that? Why do you think we have acronyms in the first place? And why do you think we have smileys? Smile I love you

1337=Elite. The 1 represents L, the 3s represent E, and the 7 represents T. So, 1337 becomes LEET becomes Elite.


Acronyms are fine. Just so long as you don't overuse/abuse them.
