Ebonics is the language of African-American Ancestry, struggle, pain, intelligence, love, mercy, understanding, survival, resistance, and enjoyment. Ebonics, represents that warm place in the hearts of many of us African-Americans, when we think about our Ancestors, who could not speak nor understand English, but struggled to speak a language they were not taught formally for hundreds of years. Ebonics allows us to connect with our Ancestors through language. Ebonics is a language that is celebrated, enjoyed, and spoken intentionally by me, because it is easy on my tongue, fun, creative, and saves time. I 'respect' Standard English, but I 'LOVE' Ebonics and Slang, because they are a part of me - a decent and meaningful part of MY history, My culture, and MY family. My Ancestors spoke Ebonics while they cried in pain, but now, I can speak Ebonics while I smile with joy.
Standard English Example:
Question: What do you need to do?
Answer: I need to take the time, to gather the information, and then double check it, to see if I am correct in my facts; Then I have to package it and take it to the Post Office, so that I can get it insured, to make sure I don't lose my valuable work.

Ebonics Example:
Question: What cha' gawn do?
Answer: Lawd ha' murcy! I nee' ta git dis stuff togetha
and take it ta da Post office, and git me some insurance!

(n) ebony+phonics=ebonics (language of blacks)
how the majority of blacks tamper with english. its not an official language but very widely known. its a fun alternative to boring english. like any language, ebonics has rules to follow. if you do not know them, you will look stupid trying to talk it or be lost when someone speaking ebonics adresses you
Here are rules for changing words:
1) for a word that has an ending pronounced 'ore' as in 'or' or 'more', remove to 'r' or 're' and add an apostrophe
2) for words with endings that are pronounced 'er' as in 'killer', remove the 'er' and add 'a', 'uh', or 'ah'(which is pronounced 'uh')
for plural words, do the same exept 'ers' as in 'killers' is replaced by 'uz' (pronounced uh-z) or 'az'(pronounced 'uz')
3) for words that end in 'ool', such as 'cool' or 'fool', get rid of the 'l' and add an apostrophe instead

1) store > sto'
for > fo'
your/you're > yo'
2) nigger > nigga, nigguh, niggah
niggers > niggaz, nigguz
3) cool > coo'
fool > foo'

Originally invented by academics trying to create pride in the distinctive speech dialect of African-Americans, this word is now mainly used by ignorant white bigots to attack blacks, who they think are stupid, lazy, and unjustly supported by the welfare state.
