Terra. 23. College Student at UWM. Extremely Loud and loveable. Trying to see the brighter things in life when it gets a little crappy. A jokester. Seeing what life has to offer and what's worth the chase. Creative soul at heart. I love to write, paint, draw, take pictures. Anything that lets demonstrate my own creativity. Lover of books. Even though I'm technology nerd at heart and have a love gadgets, paperback never is out of style for me. Speaking of style, I love clothes and shoes. I treat my friends like their family, so I'm pretty close with most of the people I know. I have nothing to hide <3
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.
