GUEST,a guest Help: ship sisters?sealion woman? (52* d) RE: Help: ship sisters?sealion woman? 27 Aug 07


See Lye Woman, because of African dilect most Blacks could not speak english good. so instead of Sea Lion Woman, the words were Sea Lye Woman or see the lying Woman. Look at history such words as Whaca, gonna, getca, seya, due to language and culture, lots of blacks were not educated so a lot of words were made short. This is due to slavery and trying to learn the language. Remember African people did not speak the language. It is a culture thing, and it is still reflected
into the society today. As Blacks-learned more and got educated then they began to learn the language. You can still some of this type of
spoken words on the Streets of the larger cities in America.

If you study the various cultures in this country you always find a language barrier. Yesome, yall, halla, jeest not just. Some people call a third language. But, as we say in the hood, we still have to learn the queen's english (smile )
