NEW BOOK FROM BLACKWELL PUBLISHING

The Development of African American English
Walt Wolfram and Erik R. Thomas, both North Carolina State University

This book focuses on one of the most persistent and controversial
questions in modern sociolinguistics: the past and present development
of African American Vernacular English (AAVE). Despite intense
scrutiny of the historical and current development of AAVE, a number
of issues remain unresolved. Most prominent among these is the
development of African American English during the antebellum period
and the trajectory of change in twentieth-century AAVE. This book
addresses both of these issues by examining an unparalleled
sociolinguistic situation involving a long-standing, isolated,
biracial community situated in a distinctive dialect region of coastal
North Carolina. This unique environment provides a venue for dealing
with questions of localized dialect accommodation and ethnolinguistic
distinctiveness in earlier African American English. The conclusions
drawn challenge the Creolist, Anglicist, and neo-Anglicist positions
with respect to the history of AAVE and offer insights into the
development of African American speech in the twentieth century.
