This volume, based on presentations at a 1998 state of the art
conference at the University of Georgia, critically examines African
American English (AAE) socially, culturally, historically, and
educationally. It explores the relationship between AAE and other
varieties of English (namely Southern White Vernaculars, Gullah, and
Caribbean English creoles), language use in the African American
community (e.g., Hip Hop, women's language, and directness), and
application of our knowledge about AAE to issues in education (e.g.,
improving overall academic success). To its credit (since most books
avoid the issue), the volume also seeks to define the term 'AAE' and
challenge researchers to address the complexity of defining a language
and its speakers. The volume collectively tries to help readers better
understand language use in the African American community and how that
understanding benefits all who value language variation and the
knowledge such study brings to our society.
