Title: ebonics is just clownspeak.
Post by: sc2020 on April 13, 2016, 05:15:16 AM
is ebonics just a dialect for clownin around. like we say things that matter in almost normal english, then when we gotta say something funny we ebonics it up. no one takes that shit seriously, it's just goofspeak. Clown-talk.


Ebonics- is it for clowns? Or is it a Respectable Dialect of the American English Language? pls post reponses below

more than saying something "funny" in a particular way, which by th way is fetishizing black culture, ebonics has been adopted by the north american public as a complete vernacular based on pop culture references.

it's the same idea though, no one says fam or finna or YOLO seriously. it always has a layer of irony to it.

Also, seriously, ebonics is as valid a dialect of American English as the bullshit that is Appalachian English

uhh i think most parts of ebonics are legitimate, un-ironic slang for black people until they're adopted by awkward white people trying to seem hip or funny

so you telling me someone thought "fam" wasn't funny/dumb sounding and they used it without 100% seriousness.  if you believe that then you're racist for thinking black people are that retarded

nah, there are people who go around 24/7 talking in lingo they learn from TV and the radio, in a serious attempt to 'be' that. sad but true!

Talking like extreme ebonics is a little different than people saying 'fam' and whatnot on apps though

no you're right but there ARE some recipients of this language who do take it seriously and their mission is to 'be' that person.

i hate to say it, but kaz is right.
but i live in the south so like some of my speech is p. much influenced by aave by default tbh
it's not unintelligible like scots though
glaswegian is so hard to understand
i tried to watch Rab C. Nesbitt the other day and i had to watch it with subtitles

fam isn't even exclusively used by aave tho, but london is just as black and canada is filled with wiggers

> mfw ebonics doesnt really bother me but i find internet speak more annoying tbh. not even spoken internet speak. just reading it makes me p. furious i am mad at myself rn. as long as ebonics isn't forced and it doesnt lose authenticity its okay. idk if i could watch the wire had all the """urban"" ppl spoke proper english

i don't like using 'fam' because that's pretty unnatural to me, and i strive to be myself online... mostly.
i use 'like' every other word and 'actually' a lot
tbh is basically a sarcasm tag
using emojis are basically a sarcasm tag
using tbh + emoji means that i'm being post-ironic
meta as it is commonly used on the internet is silly so i rarely use that word because 1) it's not well-defined and 2) you could say anything is meta without a hint of irony
using numbered lists like i used in the last sentence was something i picked up from a baby boomer, as it seems to annoy people pretty well
prolly p. much def lbh tbh faq fag

I just use AutoModerator to make internet slang disappear from my subreddits.
like if a user types "chad is about to die...", i have automod give him a retarded flair and have automoderator filter everyone with the retarded flair so they disappear from then on

there's nothing wrong with ebonics, i just mean that's it's good for making the Humor because that it's main purpose... for sounding goofy
