I get the whole “The way I are” thing. Sure, “are” doesn’t agree with the subject, according to standard American English morphology, which specifies the following paradigm for the verb “be” in the present tense:
|1||(I) am||(we) are|
|2||(you) are||(you) are|
|3||(he/she/it) is||(they) are|
So I can understand that you might level the paradigm to be uniform “are” for all person/number combinations. But the most peculiar thing seems to occur in this song (Timbaland’s “The Way I Are”, incase that wasn’t clear):
I’m about to strip and I’m well equipped
Can you handle me the way I’m are?
Emphasis mine. “I’m are”? WHAT? Where’d that second “be” come from?!
I wonder if this is genuine dialect, or if it’s intentional ungrammaticality for the sake of repeating the “are” from previous lines.
