    Ebonically speaking.........

    Is it me, or has proper grammar gone out the door with sponge curlers?...........now I don't profess to be Shakespeare.....but come on already......

    It's one thing to be with your peer group and speaking your dialect, but when you use improper grammar as part of your formal speech, something is seriously wrong with that picture.........

    I'm sitting in a meeting today at work and listening to some of my co-workers make their points, and all I'm hearing is the "you is" and "you was"........and what the hell is "conversate"........is that word in any english dictionary?

    Can somebody please help a sista out?................or am I being too touchy?..................OK, I vented..............

    mayb u r making 2 much of it............probably they are comfortable with each other and dont feel the need to adapt formality to their language.

    only reason i can think of
