Why do law students act like they deserve disrespect?
By the way, when did "disrespect" become a verb?[/font][/b]
Cambridge Dictionary makes no mention of a verb form of disrespect. Oxford is careful to point out that the informal use of disrespect as a verb is chiefly in North America. I believe it comes from the ebonics word "dis". I don't have respect for anyone who uses disrespect as a verb.
colloquial usage often deviates from orthodoxy and eventually supersedes it...
