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.

Ebonics - Plural noun (treated as singular), Blend of Ebony and Phonics.

The African-American dialect of Standard English, there are different dialects within Ebonics itself. Similar to how the American dialect of English has dialects within itself such as the Texan dialect and the Boston dialect.

Ebonics is a dialect of Standard English just as American, Canadian, Scottish, Irish, Australian ect. forms of English are all dialects of Standard English. It is usually spoken by African-Americans who are the decedents of Black slaves from West Africa and the Caribbean.
Ebonics was born from the fact that African-American slaves were not allowed to learn how to read or write during their lives. Without proper instruction from their English speaking "masters" slaves were forced to learn English with the only language rules they knew from their native languages. Ebonics are usually seen as a form of "broken English" as a result. However they bear a resemblance to Scottish speakers of English.

The Scottish people who used to speak Gaelic had English forced upon them by the English as well during conquest and enslavement. However proper instruction was not given in the language and its rules and as a result the Scottish dialect of English is different than Standard English.

Both Scottish English, and African-American English (Ebonics) are dialects of Standard English. However, certain people have tried to claim that Ebonics is a separate language in it's own right while choosing to ignore basic definitions of language and other examples of similar cases. If Ebonics is indeed a separate language than the Scottish dialect of English, and many other dialects of English will also be different languages. The people who are trying to establish Ebonics as a separate language are simply trying to segregate African-Americans dialects as well as their culture from American culture and not allowing it to be included in Euro-American culture.

A lame excuse in a pathetic attempt to explain away the fact that black students don't do as well in academics as Caucasian students. It was actually proposed in Oakland California that black students be taught in ebonics. In an absurd attempt to raise black students test scores.
UNBELIEVABLE!!!

(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'
That was a short lesson in ebonics

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.
