Whatever you enforce. If you did not correct him from day one, it will be more difficult now, but try this:

"Son, I will not tolerate you speaking to me in that manner. When you can speak respectfully, and request things in a reasonable tone of voice, I will consider your request."

"Son, that language is not OK in this house. If you choose to continue, you will surrender your _______________ (whatever, phone, computer, etc)"

And continue to be consistent in your enforcement.
