This book gives us a keener insight into Ebonics. It helps us to recognize the fact that most people use the language. It puts the highly-educated, nose-in-the-air persons in check, because they will discover that they are guilty of speaking Ebonics.
You will: be entertained, learn, laugh, hear yourself, have fun.
This book is a collection of words and terms that we use everyday. Some old, and many new. Some of these words are actually two and three words put together, but the way some of us speak, they sound like one word. For example, 'WAOUNCHU.' If you can't figure out how to say it, then it is important to read on because then you'll find the word broken down phonetically into syllables, with the accent on the upper case letters. For example; (WA-Oun-chu). Then it's used in a sentence, and translated. Some of the words even come with an "alternative English" usage for proper speaking folks!
You will not find most of these words in Webster's or anybody else's dictionary!About the Author:
