    Talking The Ebonics Bible

    I saw this website somewhere:

    www.asksnoop.com

    And so I decided to go check it out. Well it turns out that it translates webpages into ebonics.

    So I decided that was pretty funny and I tested it on several pages.

    Then I got an idea, what would the Bible look like in Ebonics?



    So I went to google and looked for an etext of the Bible, and used www.asksnoop.com to translate Genesis Chapter 1 into Ebonics for me.

    If you wanna check it out, I put it on my site:

    http://www33.brinkster.com/cyfallshs/genesis2.html

    It is pretty funny (as long as you dont feel offended by seeing the Bible in ebonics)

    This automated translator provides a stereotyped and generalized version of the African-American English Vernacular (that would be the pompous, politically correct name for Ebonics). In truth this is nothing more than a marketing gimick done in poor taste. Linguists can tell you that Ebonics is a real language/dialect with its own grammatical rules that only have a similarity with standard American English.

    Minus the "shiznet," "Dogg,"da," and "know what I'm sayin'?" this translator just phoneticizes common pronunciations that are hardly exclusive to Ebonics or any other "lower-class" speech variety.

    I love how people try to "sound" smart and dont even realize something like "phoneticizes" is not a word!

    Umm, no. This translator is based around Snoop Dogg, not around the African-American English Vernacular. I don't think that even you would disagree he has a slightly different way of saying things than most everybody else.

    Nice try, but nope.

    Sure it is. If it was not a word, I would not have been able to type it. It may not appear in a dictionary, but does it follow the regular pattern { adjective + -[ize] -> verb }. If people always stuck to the words already in well-known dictionaries, the language would never change and be able to express new ideas or be able to express common ideas more effectively.

    Note: Please ignore the last post. It was messed up due to clicking the back button after an error message.
