The anonymous teacher warned students that if they were caught using any of the listed phrases then they would have to write a short essay “explaining why you chose to use these words in an academic setting to express yourselves”.

The list included phrases like “you ate that up”, which is used when something is completed successfully, “that’s cap”, which is used to describe something fake.

Some of the more questionable phrases include “ooh-wee, skee-yee”, “in the cut with my twin” and “gyat”.

In explaining the reasoning for the rules, the teacher claimed there were many ways for a person to express themselves without using slang.

Please know using slang in an academic setting can diminish your capability to become a successful writer. More often than not, the way you speak is the way you write,

the teacher wrote.

The teacher also noted that the list of prohibited words was subject to change throughout the year.
