ebonics is a dialect most commonly used by African-Americans. it involves grammar, punctuation and other things and often changes depending on what state, region you're in. ebonics is NOT slang. those who believe it is only show their ignorance. why would linguists study something that is insignificant. i would suggest those who believe this is only slang to pick up a book on pedagogy, read for clarity and understanding, and if you still don't get it, you never will.
Ebonics - I be wondering why people don't read a book for clarity.
