    Abstract

    The term ‘Ebonics’ refers to Black English in America, or what some linguists call African American Vernacular English (AAVE). This paper is about what I learned from researching the Ebonics issue on the Web. While the Web has some limitations as a source of information, it has special potential as a source of data on popular opinion, and I used it to search for opinion and other information on Ebonics through viewing and cataloguing over 1500 Web pages.
