African American Vernacular English Episode 2 – Done // AAVE // Understanding Native Speech
Announcement




Learn how we use the word “done” in African American Vernacular Episode 2! We cover how the word “done” is used in this episode as well as other past tense constructions such as “been done” do indicate something happened far in the past or stress that it’s something that has already happened (something exclusive to AAVE that doesn’t have a standard English Equivalent) as well as “done been” as the past tense habitual form of “to be” which I covered in the first episode of the series. As always many examples are provided to help you learn the meanings in context. Subsequent episodes will build upon what has already been covered so stay subscribed to make sure you don’t miss anything!

Welcome to What’s Good English! On this channel we explore the slang, common phrases, idioms, and AAVE. My goal is to help English learners learn the meanings behind some of our harder to understand vocabular and phrases that are in our common speech in context. I do this through telling stories with slang, idioms, and odd phrases sprinkled in every Tuesday as well as explaining certain aspects of the language more in depth every Friday. I try demonstrate as much as I can acted out in humorous (ok well sometimes humorous) sketches so they can be learned with real context because that helps us remember far better than a simple explanation. I’m a language learner myself and occasionally I upload a bonus episode about language learning tips and things I learned through my trials and errors trying to learn languages. If you like what you’ve read, please subscribe and share my videos around. My goal really is to help as many people as I can understand these fun curiosities of the English Language.

Thank you so very much for watching!
