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?
 
Everything about that post and this thread...
 
I type exactly how I speak... emoticons included.

:ninja: is always a fun one. :p

Why would you do that?
 
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:

Bring back the Global Warming thread! :mad:
 
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.

I don't need no nobody or nothin' cuz I can't get no nothin' from nobody.

What about youse?

Why? :confused: Anyway, I speak the way I type.

I tend to speak with a Transylvanian accent.

:lmao:
 
I tend to stutter. It's difficult for me to get a sentence out of my mouth without messing it up somehow.
 
I'm the same on line as I am IRL.
I don't front. :p
 
I speak the same way. Except more cussing.
 
That's terrible conformity that you think to fit in you need to talk "ghetto"
