Interested in extending article's content
I'm interested in extending some of the article's content - detail about John R Rickford as well as his work.
Some points I would like to include are:
- Additional facts about Rickford's education/career
- Short overview about the development of his career over time
- Paragraph about how his work impacted the recognition of African American English as an official dialect
- Overviews of other of Rickford's influential and significant works in and outside of the field
- Organizations, motivations, aspirations
Possible relevant sources I accumulated for that matter are the following. I appreciate further recommendations.
