Abstract and Keywords
This chapter outlines three complementary linguistic approaches to studying the racialized identification of speech and contributes to the ongoing conversation, in this volume and elsewhere, about the social and linguistic construction of linkages between race and speech style of interlocutors. With particular attention to the implications of these different approaches to studying attitudes that link race and speech for African Americans, two goals frame this chapter: (1) synthesizing linguistic approaches to the attitudinal links between race and speech and (2) contributing to research on social and ideological aspects of identifying or categorizing speech styles associated with African American Language and African American communities.
