Report his ass to the principle for not teaching you how to write in ghetto slang and for giving such an ignorant assignment.

That sounds like the best assignment EVAR. Your teacher = ghetto
I was bad with usernames at age 12. Ah woe.

Try and write in perfect English, no grammatical errors at all. If you need help with that, ask any of the Grammar Nazi's that populate UG.

I agree with the teacher to a degree, although hip and rap is a viable subculture of society, but he / she should not force you to do this assignment. The assignment is dumb as it seeks to attack a subculture of society, rather than discussing how and why language and the meaning of certain words have changed over time.

P.S ebonics is garbage. It is just poor english. Words sound simiilar enough to be recognized as part of the enlgish langauge. The words are spelled wrong, which should not constitute a dialect, as the words new spelling generally reflect substituting letters taht have similar phonetic properties to maintain the general pronouciation. For example. What's up is used by urban folk as wuz up. the is different slight and letters used to achieve the effect are changed. The effect being created is recognizable to most others it is simply been altered to siut a particular segment of society who think that not being able to spell or pronounce words is cool. From where I stand being intelligent and using your mind to its fullest potential is cool.

I wouldve written your essay for you. How easy is that, just make it so no one can understand and you'll get top marks. Look at some Sean Paul lyrics, never know what the f*ck he's going on about.

That is an interesting point. Although I generally dislike the way some english is used in hip hop and rap culture, there could be some comparison drawn between bastardized french and urban lingo. But I do not know enough about the birth of english to give much opinion. English does seem pretty different than romantic languages like french and latin so not completely sure of the bastardization comment but interesting paralell none the less.

its called Ebonics people not ghettoized english

Or Jive.

If you could write a whole essay in Jive, you'd be the man. Seriously. Ebonics is just for idiots who can't be bothered to spell correctly or actually learn the language. But Jive is a language all its own using a lot of metaphor and colorful imagery.

Tell her to stop being such a ridiculously stupid bitch, to try teaching something real and to stop wasting everyone's f**king time with useless and opnionated lessons.
