Un-Words, Pt. II

Let me be frank: Seent is not a word. You know “I seent it over there.” Which brings about another issue. “I” and “seen” or seent, as it were, should never be put together. “I seen” is a flagrant violation of all that is righteous in decent grammar, rhetoric and sentence structure. Don’t do it, people. I beg you. Just don’t. No, I ain’t too proud to beg.

Martin Luther King Jr. and El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (Malcolm X) discussing their desire for people to stop saying “I seen.” After which, they go on to discuss the un-word “conversate” and how it can be eradicated in a private conference.
