We examine children's dialogue and its rendering in children's literature, focusing on the voices of minority children within an American setting. Each student will pick an age group to study. There will be regular fiction-writing assignments as well as (remote) primary research assignments with children. This course is for linguists, writers of children's fiction, and anyone else interested in child development or reading skills.
