Development of a Dialect Differentiation Measure for Black English: A Pilot Study.
The results of a study in which eight black kindergarten children responded to a set of structured tasks designed to elicit linguistic constructions which characterize Black English are presented and discussed in this Southwest Regional Laboratory (SWRL) technical note. Some of the children responded with a high rate of nonstandard realizations; others, with a high rate of standard realizations. Implicational relationships among the constructions examined are identified. (Author/RB)
