Bachelor Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Didactics - English - Pedagogy, Literature Studies, grade: 1,0, Humboldt-University of Berlin, language: English, abstract: African American Vernacular English (AAVE) is one of the most researched and controversially discussed varieties by sociolinguists. In this paper the controversial origin debate of AAVE will be discussed on the basis of the sociohistorical context and, more importantly, linguistic patterns. Following a chronological order, the way in which AAVE and Southern White Vernaculars (SWV) developed with respect to each other after slavery was abolished will be outlined after.In the following chapter, the socioeconomic impacts of the Great Migration and Urbanization on the African American community will be laid out, as this historic development is essential in understanding contemporary sociolinguistic developments. These will finally be discussed by looking at a number of studies that focused on linguistic innovations and changes that occurred during the 1980's in different parts of the country.While the focus of this paper lies on AAVE, the development of a number of white vernaculars spoken both in the North as well as in the South of the US will be outlined and compared to AAVE as well. Linguistic structural features will be compared, put into their sociohistorical context and will therefore serve as a basis to describe the overall dynamics between white and black vernaculars.
