    (Well... I feel awkward now. I'm from the Southern U.S. we don't speak English our entire language is slang... therefore the names it was given Slanglish, Southern English, or just Southern. If I was to write how I speak very few of you would be able to understand it unless you were familiar with it xD lol)

    kudos

    xD Slanglish! First time I hear that.

    That's the thing with languages. They are not static or homogeneous at all and slangs and jargons are varieties. Wisdom in terms of languages lay on the ability to choose the most appropriate variety to adress each audience and better fulfill language's ultimate objective: communication. Nothing else than the degree of sucess in achieving this defines a variety as being better than other. That's my point of view at least! But these are well known concepts in linguistics, anyway. :D

    Surprise


    Whats even weirder is Historical linguists from around the wold have found that my homelands Dialect here in America is the oldest English Dialect still in use as it's the closest to Elizabethan English out of all the dialects in the world.

    for example:In most of the U.S. its Burned while in the South it's Burnt. lol

    The house burned down on March Twenty-seventh.
    vs.
    The house burnt down on March twenty-seventh

    and the pronunciation is all different, Where i come from that sentence sounds like...

    Duh how-se burnt da-ow-n own march twinty-sevb'mth.

    lol

    dialects are new languages in their infancy.

    xD

    Yeah, I hate when that happens. Anyway, what I had written was basically about languages being dialects, acutally. There could be much discussion about this, but from a linguistic, one can say maybe scientific, point of view, there's no difference whatsoever between a language and a "dialect". The difference among them being their political status. Of course, you can also take a look at the evolution of dialects and establish how far one dialect is from another, or which one precedes the other, but that's if we look at the past, and one could discuss ad eternum where to locate a language's origins, and many many other things. :p
