I hate when you're reading an interview transcript and the editor fills in what a person means.

- Person: They ready to go.

- The interview: They [are] ready to go.

What does that [are] add to the sentence? Why?

what i was wondering too. like do editors not know, or just not care that AAVE is actually real and has linguistic rules and isn't just "bad english"
