Comprehension and Production of Standard and Black English by Lower-Class Black Children
Gay, Judy; Tweney, Ryan D.
Developmental Psychology, 12, 3, 262-268, May 76
Seventy-two lower-class black children were given tests of grammatical contrasts and production. The results indicated that comprehension of both easy and hard contrasts in both black and standard English increased with age in a parallel fashion, but that the production of black English decreased with age.
