How much do i hate that word of bro

Now i freely admit not being some Oxford graduate or posh git, but every time i hear somebody say ``you alrite bro``
it just comes across as so lazy and slob like a sentence to use

What the heck has become of the English language that it is butchered by people with their ``innit mate``

and `` bro, bro`` bs.. i mean heck they arent even words!!


Don't be gimme no backchat now bro,ya get me?
Seriously though,
The English language has been eviscerated by such technologies as the mobile phone,laptop,tablet and wanton globalization.
Do not hope to get it back-those days are long gone.

ya getme bro?
roflmaopimp beeaach.

I do apologise in the most sincere terms.
But its truedat.

I have seen multiple posts where you complain about things people do or say. Why can't people just be what they want to be? If you hate the term "bro" don't use it. If you don't like something else someone says, or does, don't do it either.

You are in no position to dictate what other can or cannot do. Ignore it and move on. Lead by example.

I can't stand when people pick apart other people and try to label them with some negative stereotype for using certain language, but you won't see me starting a thread about it because its none of my business what other people do.

You will forever find annoying aspects of people's personalities, pop culture, and society in general. My advice would be to learn to ignore it. Dwelling on that which annoys you can only lead to bitterness and hate, which serves no purpose and can only lead to increased negativity.

Call it PC all you want, people talk different, get over it and stop acting like they don't have the right to talk how they want.

Cause news flash, the way you talk probably sounds just as strange.


And it has nothing to do with their education level, it is a product of environment.

I never gave my opinion on ebonics. You stop policing speech, I'm not.

Yes ebonics is a result of under education. Its origins are the cotton fields of pre civil war America .

Further, why aren't scientist or professionals using ebonics as a descriptive laungage if its just the way someone speaks and not the result of poor upbringing?

I live in Essex, England.

It is FULL of people who cannot for the life of them understand which are the correct grammatical mechanisms to use in a given situation. This is a typical sentence, spoken by one of the knuckle dragging half lives who walks past my shop every day...

"You awright Bruv? Bare cold innit? Booyah!"

This sentence has it all. Words which mean nothing, words which are horrifically mispronounced, and words being misused. I feel like the best thing to do, would be to get a t-shirt made which has, printed proudly across its frontage, the words :

Either speak properly, or nail gun your mouth shut!

Edit to add:

All this talk of Ebonics... Well, I do not know about that. This gutter tripe language from my region (which I would not speak, despite being of very common stock thank you very much) is spoken by the majority of people in my area, regardless of skin tone, origins, nationality, and what have you. It is just some horrible mess that came about out of laziness, and should be eradicated, preferably by fire, or with a blunt force instrument, at every available opportunity.

Nope, your explanation actually made me more confused?

Unless that was a ricky Martin song, I've heard of him?
its a form of predominantly under educated African American English. Ebony the core of the words and ics referring to phonics


Long term conditining won, we lost.

Which is NOT a form of education but that of an environment!
Sure its origins may come from people that were not educated, but news flash, they were not allowed to be either.

I never said it was a professional way to speak, but to assume that those in higher education didn't grow up around it would be obtuse.

And it is not even exclusive to african americans, it is from the deep south where pretty much every one talks a little different then the rest of us.

When I taught high school English, I found I had to treat Ebonics as though it were another of the "primary languages other than English" that were spoken in students' homes. I actually had to make, and stick to, a formal declaration that my English classroom was an English Only Zone - and that standard, formal English was the norm.

Naturally - journals, fiction, creative writing ALL could use any language the student chose, but I can only evaluate what I can understand. The rule I followed was: "If your writing does not convey your meaning, then I cannot give this piece of writing any better than a C. Submit a translation that I can comprehend, and I will reconsider the grade."

Sure, parents howled. At first. Their snowflake deserved better than a C. Handing the paper over, and asking the parent to explain the theme, characterization, plot development, etc. etc. and watching them struggle through:

A) The poor grammar, individualized spellings, and lack of formal structure
B) Lousy handwriting

usually made the point.

I must stress that I taught 11th and 12th graders - students who were within 2 years of tackling college or some other life after high school. This is way too late to learn that the ability to spell cashier can mean never having to be one.
