The Ebonics Enigma: An Analysis of Attitudes on an Urban Campus.
Barnes, Sandra L.
Race, Ethnicity and Education, v6 n3 p247-63 Sep 2003
Surveyed diverse students at an urban U.S. college to investigate their opinions of Ebonics. Three dimensions of Ebonics opinions, identified through factor analysis, suggested a typology of student orientations toward Ebonics, and multiple regression analysis identified variables that predicted these orientations. Findings showed that respondents varied in their opinions about Ebonics. Many of them associated Ebonics with socioeconomic constraints. Political orientation, age, and media influenced their views.
