    Na, Na, Na, Na, Na. Like your name says "No way" bru, you need to first do some research (your own), then ask for views, opinions, perspectives (whatever u wanna call them). Nobody is gonna do your work. And the other thing is, you may not get help, but lies from someone who claims he/she knows Tsotsi taal (slang in South Africa). Go to google and google that shit- it gonna help you. Research on Ghettos, Favellas, Townships - and many other terms used as a description of historically disadvantaged hoods. Also reasearch on the manifestations of Gangsterism (commit any petty crime so that you can take a hike to one your neighbouring prisons- just fuckin with u :lol: ) That the help I can give you. Don't know about the others.

    Anyway, what fuckin academic research is conducted at this time of the year, Haa.

    Are you talking about academic papers or something else?! Umm. There is a good page for academic papers perhaps!

    Also,you can find some other content on it,such as ski clothing or ryder cup or a levels.

    You can search on the homepage try some other keywords,no ads even.these page updated every day.Because of the huge database,it perhaps not very fast,if you don't like it,take it easy.

    well,advantages of using makes for easier communication in most communities,cos after the lingua Franca its the slang dats the most recognizable form of communication,in some cases it comes be'fo Lingua Franca.....

    disadvantages...slang is mostly corrupted versions of an original language so too much use of slang,culd make some languages extinct...since its easier to use communicating...

    From ur Mod....

    Pm if u need more extensive details.....

    Speaking straight slang at times means your vocabulary is quite limited so not always good :(

    Slangs atimes sound interesting when alot of people understand wot their saying,but it could also get ugly when ur slang is not in circulation or sorta meaningful.

    I hate it when come across on a track referring to each other as NIGGERS. What the fuck is that shit about? I mean, here we are busy trying to rub out this niggative stigma about S.A Hip hop being a clone of that western shit. The truth is that cats havent learnt to relate the music to their everyday life, they are to busy trying to sound like Jay, Nas and all those cats.

    So come on bafowethu, lets bring the real south african flavour and stop that niggative shit, aight? Peace!!
