List Price: $9.00 (Paperback - Friendship / Communication / Slang vs Standard English - 2012)
A tender naive friendship is challenged when both girls become valedictorian candidates. One young girl emulates street talk and the other articulates Standard English. Yet both are champions in their academics.
(Often Slang is viewed as adding flavor to the language of the user. It like adding cayenne pepper to an otherwise bland dish. When slang is used in the wrong setting it can burn the ear of the listener. Knowing and using Standard English properly in any setting can enlighten the hearing of the listener. It like a common denominator across many cultures.)
