    Just like the title says. Sure, a lot of us sound articulate when we're typing on a keyboard, but it's an entirely different matter when the words are comin' out your mouth.

    Myself, being from the ghetto, I switch from sounding very much like I do on here, to speaking in ebonics, though not on a large level.

    Example:

    Online: " I don't have any of that."

    IRL: " I ain't got none'a that, foo.' "



    What about youse?

    That doesn't make any sense.

    I tend to speak with a Transylvanian accent.

    That depends. I swear a bit more IRL, and while I don't always speak like I type, I do on occasion. I've gotten into several real-life debates, and it's second nature for me to (on those occasions) up the ante a bit by expanding my vocabulary. :cwink: In those situations I'm just a bit more deliberate with my speech.

    Other times, it's casual. I'll still use a lot of scientific vocabulary, as I'm lucky enough to be around people who (for the most part) don't need me to dumb things down for them. My ex-girlfriend/roommate gets it when I use those words. I like discussing scientific concepts (so I get to use phrases like, "parallel adaptive radiation."). :yay:

    It amazes me how double negatives have become the standard when speaking. How hard is it really to say, "I don't know anything" rather than "I don't know nothing"?

    I forgot his name, but the last guy I talked to there was cool. We didn't really agree, but he seemed like he had some sort of scientific background...unlike certain others. :cwink:

    The word, "ain't," irks me. The thing is, it actually used to be a grammatically correct word. The way people couple it with double-negatives makes it REALLY annoying, though.

    It's a habit; I guess due to where I've grown up. Just how I speak.

    I tend to stutter. It's difficult for me to get a sentence out of my mouth without messing it up somehow.
