Variability in Negation in African American Vernacular English.
Weldon, Tracey
Language Variation and Change, v6 n3 p359-97 1994
Provides a framework to describe the variability between negative auxiliaries in predicative constructions based on a quantitative analysis of data collected on African American vernacular English. Results indicate that, with the possible exception of the negative present variation, the alternations all belong to one underlying system. (56 references) (Author/CK)
