On Smoking in the Shower: Or Vernaculars in College English.
Haynes, Lilith M.
This paper considers the inclusion of different types of dialect variants in formal language behavior. College-level writing is examined from the points of view of the writer and the teacher, and the determinants and features of vernacular transference are discussed with reference to literary, social, and economic realities. Specific techniques for dealing with dialect are drawn from classes in English composition and the use of English in the Caribbean over the past twenty years. (Author/CFM)
