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 is when you substitute every word with a slang word instead of just using the occasional slang word

you can make up yo own word for any other word an it's cool because no one will understand your language but you and if everyone did it then no one would understand anyone and we could all just walk around going "bleep bleep"..."bappity bappity bap"..."click click"..."ah-oooga"......"narf"...."zot"
"oogity-boogity-boo"..."gazzizza"!!!
"wibbiddy wibbiddy wap"..."freun-laven"..."fweep-fweep"..."whinny whinny whinny".."wapata wapata"..."weeeeee"

Just thought I should point out (though I find it unusual that you wouldn't know this, considering your "doctorate in languages") that "aks" was actually the original pronunciation of what is now accepted as "ask".

The word "ask" originally came from the word "acsian". By the time people settled North America in the 1400's though, the word had been shortened to "aks". Like with many words (especially those combining the "s" and "c" sounds) metathesis occured, and some people began to pronounce the word as "ask".

Because of animosity between the North and the South, the North started consistently pronouncing it as "ask" and put pressure on the public school system to have it taught that way as well. "Aks" became stigmatized as the "souther/uneducated" pronunciation, though at this point had yet to be associated with African Americans.

Ultimately, under pressure fromthe North, all public schools(PS) adopted that pronunciation. Because african americans were not allowed access to PS at that time, they continued to learn that it was pronounced as "ask".

It's less a matter of "ebonics" as it is your lack of historical knowledge. Get educated love :)
In reference to the use of "aks" as an example of the controversial term "ebonics", AKS and ASK were for a long time both accepted ways to pronounce what is now most widely accepted as "Ask"
