I am currently working on an analysis the realization of interdental fricatives in African American English based on input from Standard English (or other languages), by way of constraints within the Optimality Theory framework.

However, not being a native speaker myself, I am looking for either a corpus of AAVE speech with transcriptions or simply any transcribed speech of native AAVE speakers.

Thank you very much in advance,
