African American English

Dear Kimberly,
     Many of the features of AAVE that diverge from Standard American English involve alternative syntactic and phonological processes that would fall outside of the scope of morphological analysis.  There are a few remaining morphological features such as a-gonna, but at least some of these are already recognized by ENG-MOR.  In addition, there are probably various lexical items used by AAVE speakers that are not yet in ENG-MOR but which could easily be added.
    If there are important things that ENG-MOR is not recognizing in an AAVE transcript, please tell me and we will try to add them.

Hi All,

Has anyone developed a MOR grammar for standard African-American English dialect?

Thanks so much,
Kimberly
