Decreolization?
Bailey, Guy; Maynor, Natalie
Language in Society, v16 n4 p449-73 Dec 1987
A review of recent language research regarding the black English vernacular (BEV) considers new developments involving (1) the grammars of elderly and young speakers; (2) indications that BEV is not decreolizing but is actually diverging from white speech; and (3) the effect of contemporary developments on differences between black and white speech.(Author/CB)
