Attempts to investigate the important and interesting ways in which Black English, the language of about eighty percent of Americans of African ancestry, differs from other varieties of American English. It is the opinion of the author that lack of adequate structural and historical information about Black English (also called Negro Non-Standard English or Mexican) has been a major handicap to educational programs for Black children. Includes an Index. "A highly readable, usable and extremely timely discussion of the language system and habits of African Americans in previous and current times. . . ." - Toni Cade Bambara, New York Times Book Review

(Key Words: Black English, Negroes, Black Studies, Caribbean, African Languages, Linguistics, Education, J. L. Dillard, Whites, West Africa, Standard English, Plantation Creole, Pidgin English, Jamaica, American Indians, Gullah, Disadvantaged).
