I put in an application to join the Chicago Linguistic Society (An organization where linguists and scholars working in related disciplines can present their work). I guess ebonics doesn't qualify as a language (in their opinion). Oh well! Hopefully I have better luck with my HLS (Heartland Livestock Services) application. I'm an expert in Animal intercourse, NOT due to first hand experience. Calm down you perverts. Good luck to you all. Hail Xenu!!!
