Example text

This approach has led some to propose that AAVE is made up of “co-existent systems” (Labov 1998). The idea is that, on the one hand, AAVE shares most of its grammar, the General English (GE) component, with other American dialects. But, on the other hand, it also has a “distinct” African American (AA) component. The latter contains grammatical features and rules peculiar to AAVE, such as tense/aspect auxiliaries and their combinations, “absence” of 3rd sing. /–s/, etc. Labov argues that the GE component is “a fairly complete set of syntactic, morphological and phonological structures which can function independently” (Labov 1998: 118).
