The Functional Nature of Social Dialects: Social Change and the Teaching of Black English
Cromack, Robert E.
English Record, 21, 4, 74-82, Apr 71
Black English is adequate for speakers within the black community: adding a second dialect, standard English, opens new roles with the larger society. The teacher can encourage or discourage such change depending on his relations with students and the community. (JM)
