Editorial Reviews

Review

"John Rickford has been studying AAVE for nearly 30 years and is recognized as one of the experts leading the discussion about AAVE and implementing solutions to a number of associated problems." James H. Yang, Language in Society

Book Description

This book brings together sixteen essays in African American Vernacular English (AAVE) by a leading expert in the field, one who has been researching & writing for a quarter of a century. Rickford's essays - written between 1975 & 1998 - provide an informed commentary based on systematic research rather than the opinionated misinformation that dominates media commentary on ebonics.
