Today's Ebonic word from the
New Orleans Public School System:
OMELETTE
Let's use it in a sentence :

"I should pop yo ass fo what you jus did, but omelette dis one slide."

Ebonics is the term used to refer to the urbanized 8), slang intensive, heavily accented english spoken in parts of U.S. cities.
There was an effort a few years ago to have it declared an actual language that got stopped suddenly (No data to back it up, but suspect that it was explained to the people pushing for the declaration that obtaining employment could become problematic if one of the job requirements were to speak english, and all you could speak was ebonic :oops: ).

Ebonics is kinda like what the English feel we in the states did to the english language. Now imagine that even more crucified by inner city youth to the point where we are all going "What did they say?". It's okay, in another generation it will all be butchered Spanish.

Here in the UK there is increased growth amongst the youth of today towards "Estuary English".

This is a combination of East End London and the Essex Estuary area. Unfortunately, it didn't stay there and, due to TV, youngsters all over the country are replacing 'th' with 'f', dropping the 'h' and putting in double negatives etc etc.

As in:- "Ah don' fink ah ain't got no money"

Inspite of the schlang nature of this form of English, would not the same rules of grammar apply. For example, the above sentence possess a double negative, which inherently would lead one to believe that 'This mofobro's ah pimpin bro wif los of money.
