"Divven't Write That, Man": The Influence of Tyneside Dialect Forms on Children's Free Writing.
Williamson, John
Educational Studies, v16 n3 p251-60 1990
Studies the writing achievement of 28 11-year olds attending an urban Newcastle upon Tyne (England) school and their ability to conform to standard English writing conventions. Finds the influence of a nonstandard dialect (Tyneside) to be minor. Observes writing difficulties are frequently related to mastering the writing system itself rather than bidialectalism. (NL)
