Linguistic Politics and the Black Community
Crew, Louie
Phylon, 36, 2, 117-181, Jun 75
Argues that, considering the widespread pluralism in dialects in the Black community, the linguists' use of the term "Black English" to describe the language of only one group of blacks seems an example of poor communication between linguists and the general public; and that linguistists cannot afford to ignore the racial plays for power in the academy.
