CONVERSATIONS IN A NEGRO AMERICAN DIALECT.
LOMAN, BENGT
THE DATA PRESENTED IN THIS BOOK WERE GATHERED AS PART OF A PROJECT TO ANALYZE THE NON-STANDARD DIALECT OF ENGLISH SPOKEN BY NEGRO CHILDREN IN WASHINGTON, D.C. THE ULTIMATE AIM OF THE PROJECT IS TO PRODUCE THE BASIC LINGUISTIC INFORMATION ESSENTIAL TO PROGRAMS FOR TEACHING STANDARD ENGLISH TO THESE CHILDREN. THE TAPE RECORDINGS USED IN THIS STUDY ARE AVAILABLE FROM THE CENTER FOR APPLIED LINGUISTICS AND ARE FREE, SPONTANEOUS CONVERSATIONS RECORDED IN A SPECIAL "SOUND STUDIO" INSTALLED IN A LOW-INCOME NEIGHBORHOOD OF WASHINGTON. THE PASSAGES SELECTED FROM THE RECORDINGS FOR TRANSCRIPTION ARE CONVERSATIONS BETWEEN MEMBERS OF A FAMILY GROUP AND NEIGHBORHOOD CHILDREN. A MODIFIED STANDARD ORTHOGRAPHY WAS USED FOR THE TRANSCRIPTION WITH PROSODIC ASPECTS TRANSCRIBED IN A MODIFIED TRAGER-SMITH SYSTEM. THE LANGUAGE DATA CONTAINED IN THESE TEXTS WILL SERVE AS THE BASIS FOR FURTHER LINGUISTIC AND ANTHROPOLOGICAL STUDIES. COPIES OF THIS BOOK ARE ALSO AVAILABLE FOR $4.00 FROM THE CENTER FOR APPLIED LINGUISTICS, 1717 MASSACHUSETTS AVENUE, N.W., WASHINGTON, D.C., 20036. (JD)
