  演讲稿:

  00:11Today, a baffled lady observed the shell where my soul dwells

  00:17And announced that I'm "articulate"

  00:22Which means that when it comes to enunciation and diction

  00:26I don't even think of it

  00:27‘Cause I’m "articulate"

  00:30So when my professor asks a question

  00:32And my answer is tainted with a connotation of urbanized suggestion

  00:36There’s no misdirected intention

  00:38Pay attention

  00:39‘Cause I’m “articulate”

  00:42So when my father asks, “Wha’ kinda ting is dis?”

  00:45My “articulate” answer never goes amiss

  00:48I say “father, this is the impending problem at hand”

  00:52And when I’m on the block I switch it up just because I can

  00:55So when my boy says, “What’s good with you son?”

  00:58I just say, “I jus’ fall out wit dem people but I done!”

  01:03And sometimes in class

  01:05I might pause the intellectual sounding flow to ask

  01:08“Yo! Why dese books neva be about my peoples”

  01:11Yes, I have decided to treat all three of my languages as equals

  01:15Because I’m “articulate”

  01:19But who controls articulation?

  01:22Because the English language is a multifaceted oration

  01:25Subject to indefinite transformation

  01:27Now you may think that it is ignorant to speak broken English

  01:30But I’m here to tell you that even “articulate” Americans sound foolish to the British

  01:36So when my Professor comes on the block and says, “Hello”

  01:39I stop him and say “Noooo …

  01:42You’re being inarticulate … the proper way is to say ‘what’s good’”

  01:46Now you may think that’s too hood, that’s not cool

  01:49But I’m here to tell you that even our language has rules

  01:52So when Mommy mocks me and says “ya’ll-be-madd-going-to-the-store”

  01:57I say “Mommy, no, that sentence is not following the law

  02:02Never does the word "madd" go before a present participle

  02:06That’s simply the principle of this English”

  02:08If I had the vocal capacity I would sing this from every mountaintop,

  02:12From every suburbia, and every hood

  02:14‘Cause the only God of language is the one recorded in the Genesis

  02:18Of this world saying “it is good"

  02:20So I may not always come before you with excellency of speech

  02:24But do not judge me by my language and assume

  02:26That I’m too ignorant to teach

  02:28‘Cause I speak three tongues

  02:29One for each:

  02:30Home, school and friends

  02:32I’m a tri-lingual orator

  02:34Sometimes I’m consistent with my language now

  02:36Then switch it up so I don’t bore later

  02:38Sometimes I fight back two tongues

  02:40While I use the other one in the classroom

  02:42And when I mistakenly mix them up

  02:44I feel crazy like … I’m cooking in the bathroom

  02:48I know that I had to borrow your language because mines was stolen

  02:55But you can’t expect me to speak your history wholly while mines is broken

  03:00These words are spoken

  03:02By someone who is simply fed up with the Eurocentric ideals of this season

  03:07And the reason I speak a composite version of your language

  03:10Is because mines was raped away along with my history

  03:14I speak broken English so the profusing gashes can remind us

  03:18That our current state is not a mystery

  03:21I’m so tired of the negative images that are driving my people mad

  03:26So unless you’ve seen it rob a bank stop calling my hair bad

  03:30I’m so sick of this nonsensical racial disparity

  03:34So don’t call it good unless your hair is known for donating to charity

  03:38As much as has been raped away from our people

  03:43How can you expect me to treat their imprint on your language

  03:47As anything less than equal

  03:49Let there be no confusion

  03:51Let there be no hesitation

  03:53This is not a promotion of ignorance

  03:55This is a linguistic celebration

  03:58That’s why I put "tri-lingual" on my last job application

  04:04I can help to diversify your consumer market is all I wanted them to know

  04:08And when they call me for the interview I’ll be more than happy to show that

  04:11I can say:

  04:12“What’s good”

  04:13“Whatagwan”

  04:14And of course …“Hello”

  04:17Because I’m “articulate”

  04:20Thank you.

  04:21(Applause)

  00:11今天, 一位困惑的女士观察了 我内心深处灵魂寄居的壳

  00:17并宣称我 “口才好”

  00:22这意味着 我根本不用考虑

  00:26发音和措辞

  00:27因为我“口才好”

  00:30所以当我的老师问一个问题

  00:32我的回答会 跟城市化的建议沾边

  00:36这没有不当的意思

  00:38注意

  00:39因为我“口才好”

  00:42所以当我父亲问我: ”这是神马东西?“

  00:45我“口才好”的回答从来不会出差错

  00:48我说:”爸爸,这是眼前 即将发生的问题“

  00:52所以当我在讲台上 我就打开开关, 因为我可以做到

  00:55所以当我儿子说:”我哪里好?”

  00:58我只是说:“我只是觉得#@¥%!”

  01:03而且有时候在课堂上

  01:05我可能会停下智慧的思考问道

  01:08"嘿,为什么这些书从来不是 有关我们这些人的”

  01:11是的,我已经决定同等 对待我的三种语言

  01:15因为我“口才好”

  01:19但是谁控制口才?

  01:22因为英语是多面的华丽虚饰的语言

  01:25受到不定的变化

  01:27你可能认为说蹩脚的英语是愚昧的

  01:30但是我是要告诉你 哪怕是“有口才”的美国人 在英国人听起来也很愚蠢

  01:36所以当教授站在讲台上 说“大家好”

  01:39我就会制止他说“不对”

  01:42你这么说是没口才的... 正确的说法是:“怎么吗”

  01:46现在你可能觉得这太虚伪,不酷

  01:49但是这里我是要告诉你 即使我们的语言是规范的

  01:52所以妈妈嘲笑我说到 ”你过商店去“

  01:57我说”妈,不,这个句子不合规范

  02:02不要把’过‘放在‘去’前面

  02:06这就是英语的规范“

  02:08如果我有声乐能力我就会 从每个山顶这么唱,

  02:12每个郊区,每个人

  02:14因为最标准的语言是记录在《创世纪》

  02:18在这个世界说”它是很好的“

  02:20所以我可以一直在你面前 做完美的演讲

  02:24但是不要用我的语言来评论我

  02:26说我不是一个好老师

  02:28因为我可以说三种调调

  02:29每样一种:

  02:30家,学校,朋友

  02:32我是三语演说者

  02:34有时候我保持语言的一致

  02:36然后换一种, 这样我不会不耐烦

  02:38有时候我在两种语言之间挣扎

  02:40当我在教室用另一种语调

  02:42有时候我会混用

  02:44我觉得我疯了就像... 我在厕所做饭

  02:48我知道我必须借用你的语言 因为我的语言被盗窃了

  02:55但是你不能希望我完整的说你的历史 而我的历史是破碎的

  03:00这些词汇被

  03:02那些受够了 欧洲中心主义的人

  03:07我说一种复合形式的 你们的语言的原因是

  03:10因为我的语言 已经被历史抹去了

  03:14我说蹩脚的英语 可以提醒我们

  03:18我们的现状不是一个谜

  03:21我已经受够了那些 让我们这些人发疯的负面看法

  03:26除非你看到它抢劫了银行, 否则不要说我的头发不好

  03:30我受够了这不理智的种族差异

  03:34所以也不要说它好, 除非你的头发 以捐助慈善而享誉社会。

  03:38我们的很多东西被掠去了

  03:43你们如何期待我对待 自己印迹在你们的语言中

  03:47像所有不公平的一切

  03:49让我们不在迷惑

  03:51让我们不在犹豫

  03:53这不是推进愚昧

  03:55这是语言学家的庆典

  03:58这就是为什么我在我的上封求职信上 写下“会三种语言”

  04:04我可以使你的客户多元化 这是我想让他们知道的

  04:08而且当他们打电话面试的时候 我很乐意展示这

  04:11我可以说:

  04:12”怎样了“

  04:13”好啊“

  04:14而且当然……”大家好“

  04:17因为我“口才好”

  04:20谢谢。

  04:21(鼓掌)
