so this housewife decided to rewrite the harry potter series into christian books so that her kids wont be reading about witchcraft and i just cant eveN BREATHE BC THIS IS SO HYSTERICAL
read it here:
Hogwarts School of Prayer and Miracles
"Five years down the road, Harry might have been a fornicating, drug-addicted Evolutionist!"
"Moist chocalety brownies"
"Hermione exposited knowingly" is maybe the worst dialogue tag I have ever seen. And omg every single one has an adverb attached :O
Seriously though this fic is exactly My Immortal.
whenever i see this gif
i think of this one time my sister was riding in the car and she was doodling
and she finished drawing this shark right at a stop light so she turns to the guy in the car next to her and holds up her drawing and shows it to him
and he looks over at it and he makes like that exact expression
it’s the head-bobbing dude frown of approval, i think all dudes come with it
The good news:
I found my favorite old jacket while sorting through my old stuff
The bad news:The last time I wore it I was nine years old
The best news:
I am the anime now
Anonyme a dit: why do black people use you in the wrong context? such is "you ugly" instead of "you're ugly" I know u guys can differentiate, it's a nuisance
you a bitch
It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.
So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.
What’s more, it’s been shown that copula deletion occurs in AAVE exactly in those contexts where copula contraction occurs in so-called “Standard American English.” That is, the basic sentence “You are great” can become “You’re great” in SAE and “You great” in AAVE, but “I know who you are” cannot become “I know who you’re” in SAE, and according to reports, neither can you get “I know who you” in AAVE.
In other words, AAVE is a set of grammatical rules just as complex and systematic as SAE, and the widespread belief that it is not is nothing more than yet another manifestation of deeply internalized racism.
