Abstract

African American Vernacular English (AAVE) is a variant of English spoken or dialect mostly used by black people in the US. African American Vernacular English (AAVE) as a variety of speech is adopted by slave or working-class descendants in the US. The researcher would like to analyze the grammatical features of African American Vernacular English (AAVE) in Fences movie. The aims of this study were to know the grammatical features of African American Vernacular English as uttered in the Fences movie and to explain the selected grammatical features of African American Vernacular English (AAVE) found in Fences movie in the Standard English (SE) form. The data based on dialogues from the Fences movie and the script which written by August Wilson. The research used descriptive qualitative research and the data were collected using document analysis. Based on the data analysis, the researcher found two types of grammatical features of African American Vernacular English (AAVE) such as verb phrase and negation. The verb phrase consists of five grammatical characteristics such as copula/ auxiliary absence, the generalization of is and was, invariant be, remote been, and completive done; whereas negation consists of three grammatical characteristics such as ain’t, negative concord/multiple negations, and negative inversion. This research also explains the grammatical features of African American Vernacular English (AAVE) in Standard English (SE), for example, copula/ auxiliary absence in present continuous tenses as in “Bonnie working” for “Bonnie is working” in Standard English (SE). In the sentence “Bonnie working” to be “is” is missing or not mentioned in an uttered form.
