Third, linguistic variation offers ways of examining whether the second language acquisition(SLA) engages a repeated restructuring process (Huebner, 1983).Fourth, a comparatively advanced research strand that tests the variability of target language acquisition patterns provides insights towards the way by which language students may interchange or not interchange beyond standard official style that composes most of the schoolroom teaching.

AMERICA DIALECT transfer has been preserved fully by Preston (1996).As long as other potential origins and basics of inter-learner variability are conservatively maintained, individuals may from there undertake several analyses, with sectors of learners from diverse first languages united as well as with those divided by first language. This can help to determine whether truly similar factors impacts speakers from diverse first languages in a similar manner. Conclusion This paper contains brief descriptions and findings from various articles that analyze the influence/ impact of the American dialect in second language acquisition. Some of the articles describe the factors that cause dialect to have such an impact on language acquisition. Most of the articles focus on the impact of African American English and how it results in lower language acquisition, especially for African American students. One of the articles ventures the history of the AAE and tries to analyze the reason why it is so impactful to the student’s dialect. The article concludes that there are contributing factors such as schooling and environmental factors such as parenting that influence performance. The next article seeks to understand the relationship between dialect and literary skill such as reading and comprehension of a second language. The analysis offered a stronger association of dialect and literary skill in terms of comprehension, reading, writing, and openness to vocabulary. However further research should be done into the hypothesis to determine whether the interaction between the two concepts is causal. These are a couple of the articles that stood out during the research process of this paper. In identifying the correlation between the dialect and student performance, the impact of AAE on the children’s ability to understand SAE and translate that into reading was a major issue observed during this research process. The performance of these children that are coming low-income homes also lay upon their environments and the fact the AAE, as an English dialect carries with it certain cultural experiences that make it impossible to separate the children from this dialect. The influence of the home environment on student performance cannot be neglected. A quick analysis of the key indicators of economic, social and educational wellbeing illustrates that a large number of these African America students are living below the poverty line. Of the sampled articles, only one included students with disability highlighting a gap found in the study that focuses in dialect use and the literary skills among students with special needs.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
