“Conversate” is what is called a “back-formation” based on the noun "conversation.” But the standard verb usage for this sort of thing is “converse.”

It is mos def not A "word used by backwards, ignorant, illiterate inner city "trash" whatever that means-

Since it is clear that non-standard English commonly is use more frequently than standard English which for the purpose of this we will say it is commonly called "correct English" even though there is NO such thing. Even Shakespeare used non standard English which is now standard English. so anyone who says that our words are ignorant and stupid will be kicking themselves and hating when our words become standard.
study linguistics before you hate on things you don't "like" homie. smell me- keep hating.
To converse with another: "We conversated about our plan, then decided to take the steamroller anyway."

"We descendants of pharaohs and angels Conversate telepathically connecting Like ionic bonds sharing energy glances Romance kisses soft and dances with the wind"

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"

The word Conversate is formed through a process in etymology known as back-formation. Many literary geniuses of their time used back- formation such as but not limited to Shakespeare.

Also many common and accepted words in both English and other languages all over the world contain common words that are formed through back formation.

Many ignorant individuals could learn a thing or two by studying up on both the word conversate, and other back-formations before criticizing and making a generalization about a word and the people who choose to use it.

Past tense
We conversated about the word conversate not being a word.
