Description

Current research in African-American Vernacular English pays particular attention to several select aspectual markers. But there is another aspectual marker, stay, which is relatively understudied. It is our goal to remedy this need by providing a morpho-syntactic characterization of aspectual stay and comparing it to AAVE's other aspectual markers.
