African American Vernacular English in the lyrics of Tupac Shakur
2003 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

In this essay some of the features of African American Vernacular English have been studied and I have found these features in the lyrics of the rapper Tupac Shakur. However, this study showed that the features of AAVE are not used with consistency. There is a great mixture of the standard forms and the AAVE forms. This study has a description of AAVE, a presentation of the hip hop culture and the rap music and a presentation of the life of Tupac Shakur. An appendix can be found with the lyrics referred to in the essay.
