Subject: Syntax
Question: Is Transformational Generative Grammar by Noam Chomsky
applicable to AAVE (African American Vernacular English? I want to
make a thesis for my Bachelor degree. The research question is:

What is the difference between standard English and Ebonics
using Transformational Generative Grammar?

I heard that TGG cannot be applied in vernacular language or dialect.

Thank you if you are willing to answer this.

Sincerely,

Trisha
