Interested in extending article's content[edit]

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.

  • Rickford, John R. "an Early Study of the Speech of Young Black Children in California: Why it Matters." American Speech, vol. 89, no. 2, 2014, pp. 121-142.
