Next time, please select a more relevant thread title. You could have named this one, 'someone's take on something/someone.' Cassavetes, whoever that is, has little to do with the linguistic matter at hand.
How can I understand this part of a song lyric?
What's Yr Take on Cassavetes?
Rona, I found the following comment regarding the lyrics of Le Tigre's song "What's Yr Take on Cassavettes" at What's Ya Take on Cassavettes Lyric Meaning - Le Tigre Meanings Please note, the comment contains many grammatical errors and should not be considered to be an example of correct Standard English. However, the comment may help you better understand the meaning of the song lyrics.
yeah gena rowlands starred in a lot of his films, faces for instance (1968). and the whole misogynist thing: i read somewhere that cassavetes based "woman under the influence" partially off of his emotional experiences in his own marriage to rowlands. and considering that in the film, the quasi-alcoholic, semi-psychotic mabel (played by gena rowlands) is not only completely controlled by, sent to a mental institution by, and verbally and physically abused by her violent and somewhat deranged husband, i think theres a bit of truth to both accusations of misogynist and genius. the film IS genius, despite its foundations in personal experiences. as is faces. all his female roles are eccentric and indulgent, but the films themselves are brilliant in portraying the scenario.
After some thought, I'd like to object very strongly on the prohibition this place appears to enforce on texting and twittering abbreviations.
(1) In this case it is entirely wrong because the "yr" is a direct quote.
(2) People learn English where they do it, not where they ought to do it by someone's arbitrary decree.
(3) If the texting abbreviations exercise even native speakers often enough, they must be nearly insuperable to learners.
(4) English has never been a prescriptivist language of a prescriptivist culture. A language without officially defined spelling and grammar rules is based entirely on usage.
(5) The texting usage is only growing. Whether you hate it or not.
I will even go so far as to protest what I will call the hectoring tone so often adopted to those who sneak in a texting abbreviation.
Feeling better now?
There are countless sites where textspeak is accepted. If people wish to read and use it, they can visit any of those sites at any time. In this forum we request people not to use textspeak. That doesn't seem so hard.
