Some Linguistic and Stylistic Features of Child Black English.
Key, Mary Ritchie; And Others
This paper points out some linguistic and stylistic features of Black English as spoken by children and discusses the occurrence of particular language patterns. Examples of distinct intonation patterns, paralinguistic effects, language rhythm, and other phonological features are all considered. A statistical survey of particular age-group usage of clause and sentence complexity is included. The discussion is based on six tapes of the speech of children in grades 1-3, aged 9 to 12. (VM)
