"I Wouldn't Think Nothin' of It": Teacher Candidates Survey Public on Nonstandard Usage.
Tapia, Elena
English Education, v31 n4 p295-309 Jul 1999
Describes a survey project that uses real language data and takes the teacher candidates out of the classroom. Investigates the attitudes of the public toward nonstandard usage and about where "prescriptivism and descriptivism converge." Concludes that teacher candidates need to have direct exposure to the attitudes that others hold regarding nonstandard forms. (SC)
