Influences in the Development of Children's Language Attitudes
The study focuses on factors which influence the attitudes of children toward standard and nonstandard language varieties. In a multicultural rural community in Hawaii where communicative competence includes to varying degrees a knowledge of both standard English and Hawaii Creole English, data were collected to measure the following :
- language attitudes of 68 kindergarten and first grade children,
- the fluency of these children in standard English and Hawaii Creole English, and
- language attitudes of the parents of the children.
