In our second of two episodes in honor of Black History Month, we’re addressing African American English, or AAE.

AAE is a language variation. Maybe you've heard it called a dialect. It sounds different from Mainstream American English. It has its own rules and grammar, and it emerged from a long language tradition. But when AAE is not recognized, it can be misdiagnosed as a language disorder.
