Expert in Ebonics? The DEA Wants You!

 

The DEA has recently sent off memos to translation service companies to help it find 9 new translators for African American Vernacular English, or Ebonics. Some DEA agents already work on translating Ebonics but the agency is looking to hire more.

Special Agents say there are current investigations in the Southeast and that the hunt for translators covers Atlanta, Washington, New Orleans, Miami, and the Caribbean.

Special Agents say that the right translator can make or break a case. The ideal person for the job would be someone who is a natural-born speaker, with some language training.

If this shizzle is for rizzle, it can?t be that difficultizzle. Simplizzily transform most adverbs--and other words ending in -ly--into words involving double "zz" and you?re set. Also, replace all other nouns with "i". It?s rizzily not that hard unless you are sizziriously not educated with the respect to how ezzizzly ebonics can be speakdizzled. Also, throw out all conventional rules of grammar, equip yourself with an illegally acquired firearm, some fried chicken and at least 3 crack rocks. My comments are in no way meant to be inflamatorizzlish.

  Q&A from an ebonics test......  
 
Use the following words in a sentence:

1)fortify - "I axe da ho how much and she say fortify."

2)undermine - "Issa fine ho stay in da partment undermine."

That is all for now...
