I am doing research for the elementary school principal for whom I work.
She is interested in the effects that Black Dialect has on the school
performance of inner city school children on standardized tests. She
also wants information on Black or African American Dialect's origins
I am not a linguist, so when I looked through your various sections on
your web page, I was not sure where to start looking. Could you please
We do not want our students to loose their dialect, only to show them
that there is a time and a place for all kinds of language.
I would appreciate any sources or information you can give me. Thank
you in advance for your assistance.
P.S. I can also be reached at Sslane[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]aol.com
