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.

how do people have relationship after relationship like i can’t find a single person to find me remotely attractive for a solid second

But then I discovered that people who are serial relationship-types rarely have a sense of identity when without a partner.  Now I just kind of pity those people who don’t know how to be single.

[HQ] Gong Hyo Jin for ELLE Korea - 1843 x 2385

She obviously raided my dream closet for this photo shoot, so there’s that connection.

Something about you reminds me sooo much of 공효진. And that's a compliment because I think she's awesome!

Huh? What??

I mean, thank you—-I also love her!  But I’m not sure what about me reminds you of her… Anyway, I’ll be going to sleep with a smile on my face now!

More on the Blueberry Pizza Fiasco of 2014

I told Ramen about the blueberry pizza dough, and after commiserating over the shock my tongue endured, he writes, “Maybe it’s because I’m Korean, but I think it’s worth eating at least once.”

My response:

역시

너 혼자 먹어 봐

And then he said that maybe I won’t have a problem being bitchy in Korean after all.

Friendly reminder that anyone born between 1985-1998 didn’t get their hogwarts letter because Voldemort’s ministry wiped out the record of muggleborns

This explains everything.
