ESL and Dialect Features in the Writing of Asian American Students.
Robinson, William S.
Teaching English in the Two-Year College, v22 n4 p303-09 Dec 1995
Shows how the writing of Asian American students often exhibits features that cause the students to be placed in ESL programs, but argues that these nonstandard forms should be seen as part of a dialect of English. Argues that teachers should be careful about assigning such students to ESL classes, which may be inappropriate and ineffective. (SR)
