Summary
"This book avoids technical linguistic jargon in favor of a dispassionate survey spanning from Ebonics' birth to its hostile reception by the overwhelming majority of people who repudiated the term. Baugh's investigation exposes flaws in competing definitions of Ebonics, as well as racial tensions that flared throughout this controversy. Baugh traces Ebonics from its obscure origin through its eventual public demise, considering a host of legal, educational, and theoretical issues that still linger as part of the quest for racial reconciliation. This depiction of Ebonics dispels linguistic myths with previously untold facts that will be of considerable interest to linguists, educators, scholars, and legislatures, as well as the general public."--BOOK JACKET
