(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'

Literally " Black sounds". or an African language used by African Americans that is not a dialect of English.
Ebonics:
Haps in da hood? = What's going on in the neighborhood?

Jocking my style= Messing with me or copying me in an attempt to be cool like me.

You got beef? = Are you provoking me to engage into a violent confrontation?

A form of city slang, often used in the hood (ghetto neighborhood). It's just like any other language, you have to know how to speak it in order to understand it. Often people who understand ebonics, also understand the proper use of words. Just because they can understand ebonics, does not mean that they are unable to speak "properly".
Example 1:

Ebonics: "I done ate my grub, now I best be gettin' on"

Proper English: "I've eaten my food, so now I should leave"

Example 2:

Ebonics: "I finna kick it with mah homies up in mah crib"

Proper English" "I'm going to relax with my friends at my house"

A vernacular or dialect spoken by Afrian-Americans; the result of how uneducated African slaves in America became to understand and communicate the English language. NOT SLANG.
English: I am, you are, he is

Ebonics: I be, you be, he be
