Bland-Stewart, Linda M.
Communication Disorders Quarterly, v24 n3 p109-20 Spr 2003
A study investigated phonological skills of 8 African American English (AAE)-speaking 2-year-olds. They acquired and used the same phonemes and phonological processes as described in the literature for both AAE-speaking toddlers and toddlers speaking Standard American English. Results could not distinguish typical phonological development from emergent dialectal features. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
