Codeswitching: Black English and Standard English in the African-American Linguistic Repertoire.
DeBose, Charles E.
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v13 n1-2 p157-67 1992
Black English (BE) and standard English are treated as two different closely related linguistic systems that coexist in African-American linguistics. Focus is on a middle-class female informant who appears to be a balanced bilingual and who offers counter evidence to the claim that BE is spoken mainly by poor and uneducated persons.
