Lexicon of Black English by J. L Dillard( Book )

11 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this volume is to demonstrate that the fields of linguistics, dialectology, language education, and early reading would be well served by a word book of the Black English vernacular. Chapters are devoted to discussion of the social significance of a lexicon of Black English vernacular, the terminology of sex and lovemaking, religion and the church, music (especially the blues), and the "street hustle" (prostitution, gambling, and narcotics), the problem of "slang" versus genuine black lexicon, the language of black folklore, discourse distribution and the problem of semantic difference in homophonous items, and issues in trusting literary sources as accurate reflections of black language patterns. A bibliography and an index complete the volume. (Ks)

A history of American English by J. L Dillard( Book )

34 editions published between 1992 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A History of American English provides for the first time a chronological, narrative account of the development of American English. Although it has attracted considerable attention in terms of the social and geographical distribution of the language, the historical implications and influences of American English have been surprisingly neglected. In this impressive and much-needed volume J.L. Dillard tracks the development of American English from its earliest origins through to the present day." "This comprehensive survey analyses the way in which American English has developed in a variety of forms, such as "standard", Black and pidgin, and sets this process firmly within its social contexts. It examines the mixing of British dialect groups in the early period; the coastal distribution of most of the English-speaking colonists until after the Revolutionary War; the close relationships with the West Indies; American imperialism; and the general importance of maritime contacts. The significance of the Negro, Dutch, Hawaiian, Spanish, French, Italian and German influences on the development of the language are considered." "Mobility has always been a primary characteristic of the American population, and the history of English in the United States has always reflected that mobility. Urbanization, beginning to be an important factor at the end of the nineteenth century, has been joined by suburbanization of the more affluent in the mid-to-late twentieth century, leaving the inner city largely to minority users of highly nonstandard varieties. The author assesses these contributory factors, providing an authoritative, yet accessible account of the development of American English." "A History of American English will prove ideal for students and teachers of the history of English, historical linguistics, language acquisition, sociolinguistics, language contact, general linguistics as well as the general reader with an interest in language or American history."--Jacket

Exploring the implications of transaction cost economics on Joint and System-of-Systems Programs / by Diana Angelis ... [et al.] by J. L Dillard( )

1 edition published in 2009 in Undetermined and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the Department of Defense (DoD) moves from the single-system, platform-centric paradigm to the capabilities-based paradigm, the scope and complexity of solutions are growing. The increasing emphasis on joint service and system-of-systems (SoS) capabilities has created both opportunities and challenges for materiel acquisition. A key barrier that needs to be overcome for the DoD to achieve the promises of joint service and SoS programs involves the challenge of transaction costs. These are the less visible, but nonetheless significant, costs of negotiating, managing and monitoring transactions. In an effort to identify the effect of transaction costs on more complex acquisition programs, this paper examines cost and schedule breaches in a subset of Major Defense Acquisition Programs (MDAP) that includes a sample of 84 programs, divided into joint service and traditional (single service) acquisition programs, and single system and system-of-systems (SoS) programs. The results suggest there is a statistically significant higher risk of cost and schedule breaches in SoS programs than in single system acquisition programs. This paper contributes to a broader study that eventually needs to be conducted that will evaluate the benefits and costs of increased reliance on joint service and SoS programs
