A Preliminary Bibliography of American English Dialects.
Moore, Mary Jo, Comp.
The 804 entries in this bibliography are divided into four major categories. The first category, regional dialects, is concerned with those varieties of English which are confined within specific areas of the continental United States. The second, social dialects, is concerned with varieties of English which have features that tend to be indicators of social class. This category thus includes studies of non-standard English and the language of the "disadvantaged." The third category is divided into two subcategories: Negro English of the continental United States and Negro English of the Caribbean. It was felt that any study of American Negro English would be incomplete without reference to the historical significance of the creoles and pidgins spoken in the Caribbean. The fourth category, applications to teaching and learning, is concerned primarily with teaching standard English to speakers of non-standard dialects. However, as the cultural and socioeconomic aspects of the "disadvantaged" are significantly related to the linguistic aspects, some of the literature of the cultural and socioeconomic aspects of poverty and the urban ghetto has been included in so far as it relates to education. Some of the entries in this bibliography are available through ERIC and have been listed with their ERIC Document numbers and prices. (Author/DO)
