There are 2 discussion posts, each one requires two paragraphs. Professor told us to include ” Quote from the article to demonstrate your understanding of it, and provide more specific details from your own language experience.”
1. In “When Worlds Collide: The Linguistic Legacy of the African Slave Trade,” Walt Wolfram and Benjamin Torbert discuss theories about the development of African American Vernacular English (AAVE). Based on your reading of the article, what was the most significant factor in developing this variety of English, and how does it relate to varieties of English with which you are familiar?

2. The reading, “But They Can’t Talk That Way in a Job Interview!” is a chapter from the book Talking Back, Talking Black by John McWhorter. After reading the chapter, explain what its title means. Who would make such a statement and why? What is McWhorter’s response? How does the situation McWhorter describes apply in language situations you have encountered?
