Book Information

   

Title: Language and the African American Child
Written By: Lisa J. Green
Description:

How do children acquire African American English? How do they develop the
specific language patterns of their communities? Drawing on spontaneous
speech samples and data from structured elicitation tasks, this book explains
the developmental trends in the children's language. It examines topics such as
the development of tense/aspect marking, negation and question formation, and
addresses the link between intonational patterns and meaning. Lisa Green
shows the impact that community input has on children's development of
variation in the production of certain constructions such as possessive –s, third
person singular verbal –s, and forms of copula and auxiliary be. She discusses
the implications that the linguistic description has for practical applications,
such as developing instructional materials for children in the early stages of their
education.
