Summary

The purpose of this study was to investigate the development of the ability to recognize standard and nonstandard speech in monolingual English-speaking as well as in bilingual Mexican-American children. The tests used consisted of sentences which were either completely standard English or which contained phonological, morphological, or syntactical elements illustrating nonstandard speech influenced by Spanish. Only test items which were validated by at least 80% agreement in a group of 44 monolingual English-speaking students at the 12th-and 13th-grade levels were included in the tests. Subjects were asked to indicate whether they thought the utterances heard were completely standard (speech appropriate to formal school situations), or whether they contained nonstandard features. Based on the test results, the suggestion is made that bilingual Spanish-speaking children who come from environments in which they are continuously exposed to nonstandard English influenced by Spanish should be offered special training consisting of the overt contrasting of standard and nonstandard grammar. (Included in this report are tables of the test items and scores and a reference listing.) (Author/AMM)
