Partial Bibliography: Use of Vernacular Languages, especially African American Vernacular English, in Education.

This bibliography was compiled by H. Schiffman for students to use in a course project. Some of the items were gathered by a research assistant in 1993; some have been checked for suitability, but some have not. A much more extensive bibliography is needed which others can contribute to the expansion of. See also resources in Reinecke & Suzaki, background reading from Labov et al, and any material on creolization. Any of the more recent journal articles below will have bibliographies that may need to be consulted, and should prove useful.
