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.

Aug 31

It is as of this exact moment approaching 90 degrees in my bedroom.

The AC here stopped working somewhere around 6:30pm.

Tomorrow is labor day, my first holiday from work in two months, and the AC is out, AND no one is going to be open to fix it until tuesday.

Life is just batting a thousand today isn’t it.
