Sociolinguistic and Ideological Dynamics of the Ebonics Controversy.
Wright, Richard L.
Journal of Negro Education, v67 n1 p5-15 Win 1998
Undertakes a critical language analysis of the Oakland Unified School District's 1996 resolution on Ebonics, focusing on the form, content, and function of the resolution's explicit text semantics as distinct from the public statements made about it. Discusses how the resolution frames Ebonics as a non-English-related system. (Author/SLD)
