A very primative and unbased dialect of the North American Street Ape. The Street Ape, similar to Parrots, are able to mimic the English language spoken by humans. It's impossibe that an animal such as the Street Ape could learn English in such a manner as to understand it and speak it properly, they simply lack the intelligence. But through years exposure, the Street Ape has been able to mimic these sounds, and when combined with their basic dialect of grunts, groans, shreiks, and howls, you get what is referred to as "Ebonics".

Back in the pre-1860's, when the Street Ape population was controlled properly, there were very little instances of violence against humans. Sadly, it was only up until this time period that the Street Apes were actually useful for something. Today, like the feral pig is decimating the unpopulated environment in Australia, the Street Ape is decimating and destroying every large urban setting in the US. The Street Ape has had almost no impact on rural America, because the government feeding stations for the Street Ape are almost exclusively located in inner cities.

It's blatantly obvious that the Street Ape population needs to be controlled, and the species definatly should not be allowed to continue to roam freely amongst humans. The Street Apes should be kept in zoos and in research facilities where they can possibly once again be useful to humans.
The North American Street Ape then proceeded to steal the human females purse, rape her, then go purchase some crack cocaine. While raping the human, the Street Ape howled "Ooo-Wah-Ah-Ah!" in ebonics.

Consisting of the words ebony and phonics. It is a language that has its roots in American slavery and is commonly associated with African Americans. In no way is it a sign of laziness or child like speech by its speaker. Ebonics has been popularized in the past 20 years by the introduction of rap and hip hop but is seen as a creole language comprised of African and English dialects.
My friends were going home Ebonics would translate into: Mah bros be headin to the heezee.
They came to meet me= They come meet me
They were eating= They was eating

Ebonics is the variant of language used by black americans who were not paying attention during childhood development english when pronunciation and annunciation were being taught in grade school classes like 2, 3, 4, and 5. As a result these regulars of the "ebonics" slang language have made attempts to have these wrong sounding words become a part of the english language, fortunately there has been a higher percentage of historic english speaking people defend this nonsense at the voting polls, but there will likely be a day when americans have lowered the standards as they have since the late 60's to allow this or possibly spanish slang to overtake the american english that was taught and used with regularity in classrooms. The decay in american education has come to the forefront in courtrooms, public speaking drills like community meetings where these "ebonics" people who have now forgotten or never really did learn how to speak but were passed up by the worn-out teachers suddenly are outclassed by the american speaking groups who are in the more powerful positions at these gatherings.
Yolandaa and Joe were not understood by the english speaking people in the same room because of (ebonics). Joe ebonics person says they axted you a question, the english counterpart is that Joe asked you a question; they were not holding or wielding an ax to you. Yolanda ebonics speaking person describes as a courtroom witness that he or she be going to mom's house; Yolanda ebonics was going, this has already happened or they would not be accurate in this description as the ebonics version portrays this as not happening yet but is planning to happen very soon.

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.

Literally translated from "ebony" and "phonics", Ebonics is NOT slang, it is NOT an immediate label that categorizes a person's intelligence simply because they speak it, Ebonics is a Regional Vernacular that functions as a Middle to Older compostion of the English language; adding extra negatives, fluctuating tenses and simplifying past/present/future tenses. The Southern American Vernacular is the largest Accent Group in the United States and varies depending upon which regional dialect is in question. The term "Ebonics" has been misconstrued by media into having this reputation of being some "jungle-bunny language" that only non-intellectuals with violent tendencies are prone to use, when in actuality AAE (African American English) is nothing more than a sociocultural form of English that varies between cultures and regions wherein the Southern American English dialects are found.
Metathesised Form Examples: Graps (Grasp), Aks (Ask) / etc.

Dropping Copulas (most commonly recognized and associated with Ebonics): Who you? / Where you at? / Who he be? / Where he been? / You crazy! / Where you put it at? / She my sister. / etc.

Altered Syntax: Why they ain't growin'? / Who the hell she think she is? / Who you think you be? / etc.

Contrary to ignorant posts on this website, Ebonics is NOT mere slang. Rather it is a fully-formed, complex, rule-governed system of language that has specific rules for pronunciation, vocabulary, and word order, all of which operate as a complex grammatical system inherited, in part, from West African languages. Attempts to imitate the speech patterns by those who don’t understand the complexities of the grammatical system of Ebonics not only sound ridiculous but also result in usages that are downright linguistically incorrect and culturally demeaning.
Here are four grammatical rules in ebonics:

Habitual “be”: He be mean to me. (meaning: he is habitually mean to me.)
He mean to me. (meaning: he is being mean to me right now.)
She BEEN married. (stressed “been” meaning she’s been married a long time and still is.)
Multiple negative inversion: Can’t nobody beat ‘em.
