I welcome AAVE
. I welcome the transformation of my language.
Ovo wina aave
munu kutja okuresa okunandengu koviungura na wina komundu tje ri mouyenda.
Following Rickford and Rickford (2000), the author considers that these variables are specific to AAVE
. Undoubtedly this reference constitutes an excellent source on AAVE
, but it might have been complemented with more updated sources (Green 2002; Edwards 2004; Wolfram 2004) in order to account for potential innovative linguistic traces, bearing in mind the speed with which non-standard varieties of English evolve.
in education in 1976, he has shown little interest in or understanding of nonstandard dialects, and indeed openly displayed his hostility in "Elements of Igno-Ebonics," a 1997 piece published in The Wall Street Journal that viciously caricatured the notion--unexceptionable among sociolinguists--that one could use a nonstandard dialect (in that instance, "ebonics" or AAVE
) to teach standard English to children who did not speak it.

African-American Vernacular English (AAVE
), Rebecca Wheeler and Rachel
(African-American Vernacular English) and SWVE (Southern White Vernacular English) have common origins both for historical reasons and due to the geographical locations in which they are (and were) spoken.
In Stewart's publication, the non-standard dialect most focussed upon was African-American Vernacular English (AAVE
), detailing its use in Chicago (Pederson 1964).
While the use of African American Vernacular English (AAVE
) challenges the literacy conventions expected in many academic settings, "traditional" teaching practices have often failed to address this vital matter of language diversity (Hollie, 2001; Moore, 1996; Ogbu, 1999; Wheeler and Swords, 2004).

(2) Je jaaye Jave, te kadi nabin aave
, Jo aave
, to saat pedhi baith ke khaave--goes an old Gujarati-Marwari adage, which translates:
Until we persuade the general public, the teachers, the politicians, and the policy makers of that fact, languages like AAVE
will continue to be languages that dare not speak their names." The latter has already been stated by others such as educator Nona Stokes.
