One more for the LWAA–another classic–Wolfram (1969)

Here is another oft cited but out of print classic. This time, it’s one brought to us in the LWAA from the original printing from the Center for Applied Linguistics. Live from Detroit, it’s Wolfram (1969)!

Wolfram, Walter A. 1969. A sociolinguistic description of Detroit Negro speech. Washington, DC: Center for Applied Linguistics. 1969.pdf
