Editorial Reviews

Review

"African American, Creole, And Other Vernacular Englishes In Education: A Bibliographic Resource is a must-read text for anyone teaching courses about language and education, or anyone doing research on the same topic. In the era of search engines, digital catalogues, and the Internet of all things, books still matter, especially those that help us make sense of a large body of literature.” ― Tony Mirabelli, Teachers College Record

"This volume is an invaluable resource for students, sociolinguists, applied linguists, educationists and anyone interested in unstandardised vernacular varieties of language, and the issues surrounding the education of their speakers. It also sets a new benchmark for the compilation and presentation of bibliographic resources." Pidgins and Creoles in Education

Format: Paperback
This comprehensive resource is a bibliography of over 1600 works from the last 50 years on the topic of language and education. It includes references for books, journal articles, book chapters and web-accessible dissertations, as well as abstracts for about a third of the entries. The focus is on the education of speakers of unstandardised vernacular varieties of English - such as African American (Vernacular) English, Latina/o Englishes and Australian Aboriginal English - and speakers of English-lexified pidgins and creoles - such as Tok Pisin and Jamaican Creole.

Research on language and education follows a wide range of approaches and covers a plethora of topics. What sets this volume apart from other bibliographies is that the references are classified according to one of more of 22 topics, each with a letter code.

I recently posted a brief customer review about Marco Mostert's massive BIBLIOGRAPHY OF WORKS ON MEDIEVAL COMMUNICATION (Brepols, 2012), a bibliography in which some of my publications about Walter Ong's work and literacy have generously been listed, even though I am not a medievalist.

As a follow up to that customer review, I now turn my attention to the handy bibliography titled AFRICAN AMERICAN, CREOLE, AND OTHER VERNACULAR ENGLISHES IN EDUCATION: A BIBLIOGRAPHIC RESOURCE, edited by John R. Rickford, Julie Sweetland, Angela E. Rickford, and Thomas Grano (Routledge and NCTE, 2013), a bibliography in which two of my publications about Walter Ong's work and literacy are listed, a topic I will return to momentarily.

The editors have constructed a continuous bibliography with all works listed alphabetically by the author's surname (pages 65-304). In addition to providing a complete bibliographic entry, the editors have supplied a coded way of understanding the topic(s) covered in each item. The codes after each bibliographic entry are explained in detail in the section titled "Topic Overviews and Short Citation Lists" (pages 1-64). This subsection also includes a complete alphabetized list of authors whose works are classified in each coded category (topic) and the dates of each author's work listed in each category (topic). Thanks to the coded topics, there are a number of different ways in which people can use this extensive bibliography, just as there are a number of different ways in which people can use Mostert's bibliography.

Next, I should mention that many bibliographic entries are followed by abstracts, but not all entries included abstracts. For example, only one of the two entries about my publications includes an abstract.
