Fordham, Signithia
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v30 n3 p272-93 Sep 1999
Analyzes the discourse styles, including linguistic practices, of African-American students at an urban high school. Concludes that students use Ebonics or Black English as the norm against which students evaluate other speech practices and that students construct standard English as a vernacular, a discourse to be disrespected ("dissed").
