Sometimes people mispell words on purpose. I'm particularly interested in how hip-hop culture adopts non-standard ways to spell a word like it sounds.

Particularly among bloggers who are younger [or hipper than many of us "Catters] I've noticed that numbers are mixed in with phonetically spelled words and blog abbreviations such as "LOL" probably to increase the speed of writing/communciation but also to purposely convey a a generational, "cool" style.

For example, see this excerpt from a blogger who described herself as a teenager:

"Glory, glory hallelujah
Teacher hit me with a rulah
I met her at the door
With a loaded .44
And she ain't gonna teach no more!

ok ok ... its bad but its not 4 your lil kids .. of course ... yes i am a bad lil gurl hehe..."
Wheee! Blog

While I recognize that people living in English speaking and English writing countries have to master standard English, I applaud the creative out of the box stylin that is symbolic of hip-hop culture.

What's your take on Bill Cosby's opinion of "creative out of the box stylin"

"They're standing on the corner and they can't speak English. I can't even talk the way these people talk: 'Why you ain't,' 'Where you is' ... And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk. And then I heard the father talk. ... Everybody knows it's important to speak English except these knuckleheads. ... You can't be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth!"

Borrowing another reference from a tv show I liked much less than Cosby's Huckstable family show} I'd ask Bill Cosby
"What you talkin about, Willis?"

But since I get his drift, I'd say to Bill Cosby:

"To each his [or her]own,

different strokes for different folks

and

remember your roots and culture".

{I would also add that "It takes a village to raise a child", but that supposedly African saying has gotten so overworked that it has gotten tired...

though in many ways it's still true...

And if I had a singing voice, I'd sing to Bill Cosby,
he's not heavy, he's my brother.

and reach out and touch somebody's hand
make this a better world if you can"

Then I'd bring it down home and sing this spiritual:
"You gotta mind [You gotta mind]
You gotta mind [You gotta mind]
You gotta give an account at the judgement
You gotta mind
[repeat chorus 1x]

You gotta mind how you talk
You gotta mind what you talkin about
You gotta give an account at the judgement
You gotta mind.

chorus


****

And if after all that, if Bill Cosby didn't get what I was sayin to
him, and if he continued to let his mouth run faster than his mind, I'd leave his sorry ass alone to reap from "these people" what he had sowed.

That's my answer to your question, bobad.

I don't like it when I see any group of people reduced to a style of talk that dumbs them down severely.

I saw that happen to white "hippy" kids in the late 60's and early 70's. I see it happening with both white and black youngsters now.

I also see, thankfully, plenty of young people who don't fall into those TV-created stereotypes, and can express themselves in more than a handful of dumb catch phrases and "cool" sayings.

In case I wasn't clear, let me say it this way:

By the use of those examples, Bill Cosby added energy to the ghetto talkin Black folks stereotype.

I wonder-which audience was he speaking to when he mouthed those words? Hmmm.

Though there's no question that in order to "make it" in mainstream American society, people need to know how to speak & write what is generally considered to be standard English, there are other standards, and other languaging modalities in this country. Included among them are many creative African American oral and written traditions old and new- such as jazz jive talk and hip-hop. These creative soul traditions help to keep the English language fresh.

So later for Bill Cosby. As the young girls say in their street cheers: "Poof with the attitude"! And as some of those hanging on street corner guys might say---well-I won't go there. But just use your imagination. It's a free world-or so they say.

btw-for the record..I wrote my last comment before I read Little Hawk's last post.

Little Hawk said: "I also see, thankfully, plenty of young people who don't fall into those TV-created stereotypes, and can express themselves in more than a handful of dumb catch phrases and "cool" sayings."

Yeah, Little Hawk, I hear you, but ya know, [to paraphase a now famous saying] it depends on what the meaning of 'dumb' [and 'cool'] is. One person's dumb may be another person's cool [and vise versa].

It ain't all good. But it ain't all bad either {"bad" here having its standard English meaning of not good}.

So I wanna go back to my beginning post in this thread and praise the creativity that I see evidenced by [some-not all] purposeful mispelling. This may not have been what Peace was thinking about when he started this thread, but it's where my mind went...

So there!

bobad,

I rest my case. The NAACP is not necessarily known as a big tent for all classes of African Americans. Speaking generally, members of that old school organization might have some problems relating to the peeps in the hood don't ya think?...a bit of an image problem and ..

And furthermore, Cosby should have known that his words would get media attention and be misconstrued and used as ammunition for those who like to divide and conquer.

Besides, imo, it's not what he said as much as they way he said what he said.

**NOTICE** Pedant alert! I consider it reasonably important for communication and civility to make what I say here conform to some basic standards, though NOT as if I were writing for publication. If you do NOT care how your posts appear, I guess you may ignore my pedantry. (You may spell as you wish, of course, but SuperSearch sure has problems with mind reading.)




ahem!
We do not all have equal skills or abilities. I am a very mediocre typist, but a moderately good speller. I have some problems with my eyes and I have a nerve in my neck that causes posture problems. I have to be careful how I sit to type; I have to look at my fingers when I type; I ought to double check before I push the 'post' button, as my brain gets out of sync, and I sometimes leave out words.

I understand that others may have dyslexia, varying amounts of education, language differences and personal 'preferences' about their typing habits and are sometimes in a hurry.

What I do NOT understand is why people who have problems will wear glasses for their eye problems, but not use a spell checker to improve what they post. (Unfortunately, there is no grammar & punctuation checker yet).
   When I am going to be on Mudcat, I use TinySpell. It takes ONE click to change 'wierd' to 'weird'...and I can instruct the program to tolerate my wish to sometimes use 'thru' rather than spelling out 'through'. I can also turn OFF the warning 'beep' if I wish to intentionally spell like bobert to make a point.

There are various ways to do check spelling.....some type in a word processor and paste into the box here; I just prefer to do it 'on the fly'. (Of course, TinySpell is a PC program, but MAC users have spell checkers also).

Surely it is misspell, not mispell?

And arguably misspelt rather than mispelled.

Surely it is. The title is facetious (which is, incidentally, one of two words in English in which the vowels appear in order (a,e,i,o,u)). FYI.

Misspelt & misspelled are both allowed in my spelling checker. I 'suspect' that the former is more common in the UK.

How odd that 'GUEST' noticed that 'misspell' was misspelled (or misspelt if you're a lazy colonial) :-) and felt the need to comment on it, yet the misspelling of 'words' appears to have escaped him (or her or it).

Just a gentle reminder - when used to mean also there are two o's in too.
