linguistic rules that native speakers of a
language have learned). Discussion of the main
divisions of linguistics, focusing on the
phonology, morphology, and syntax of Edited
American English. Study of the ways other
dialects, in particular, Southern American English
and African American Vernacular English, differ
from the standard and exploration of the
implications of linguistics on social and
educational policy 4
