The word Conversate is formed through a process in etymology known as back-formation. Many literary geniuses of their time used back- formation such as but not limited to Shakespeare.

Also many common and accepted words in both English and other languages all over the world contain common words that are formed through back formation.

Many ignorant individuals could learn a thing or two by studying up on both the word conversate, and other back-formations before criticizing and making a generalization about a word and the people who choose to use it.

Conversate = for many having a conversation. However the correct term according to the so called grammatically correct is to "converse."

Someone wrote an unecessary and rude explanation stereotyping inner city individuals for use of the word conversate.

In their defense I would like to note the following:

Personally I'm caucasian and not from the inner city. I went to Princeton. Many of my colleagues, ( also not from the inner city) used the word conversate. However converse is the proper phrase which actually reminds me of the sneakers converse.

Conversate should be added to regular to end all bias. It's easy to determinewhere the word is derived from and what is mean when a person uses the term. At the end of the day a word is just a word because someone made it to mean one thing based on interpretation. New words are formed everyday which should have no reference to slang unless they have no real structure of evident meaning. Spread peace. :-)
