James Callahan, 43, teaches sociology at Lowell High School, and throughout his 15 years teaching, he has overheard plenty of words he didn't understand being uttered by the so-called Gen Z students at school.
So Callahan started compiling a running list of what can be considered African-American Vernacular English phrases and he recently shared the impressive list with his students, BuzzFeed News reported.
One of his students snuck a photo and posted it to Twitter – and it quickly went viral, garnering more than 169,000 retweets since Tuesday.
