Unfortunately to all of the educated people conversate is now in the dictionary.
v. to socialize and chat; to converse with another
It is still classified as slang, but it is in the dictionary. Trust me I'm just as upset as you are.
We can sit here and conversate about some things.
Is a word that is supposed to be a verb deriving from a mutation of "converse" and "conversation. It is in the dictionary as "non-standard except in some dialects".
Some may believe this entry in the dictionary gives the word validity. It doesn't. Any slang or bastardized word embraced by popular culture could end up in the dictionary with this definition. That in no way means that it is a legitimate word.
From the same school as "irregardless" or "ain't". An example was given above to attempt to legitimize this word by quoting rap songs. Ridiculous. Is "Sizzurp" a real English word too?
The type of sentence you might hear from someone who believes this is a word:
"I don't speak English that good but I'm gonna conversate wit cha irregardless"
a non-word that drug dealers, and uneducated social rejects made popular in their own circles, by mis-pronouncing the word converse.

While conversate is technically an accepted synonym for converse, the verb tends to be favored by members of the population with IQ's that are generally well below average. This typically includes gangsta rappers, graffiti artists, and short, bald-headed asian men who work in the finance field, but believe themselves to be "thuggish".
I like to conversate with my new york financial partners this mornin'.
