Baltimore Language in the News


I am honored to be a part of this Baltimore Sun multimedia feature story on Baltimore language change! The feature includes the news article, “Hold Up, ‘Hon’: Baltimore’s Black Vernacular Youthful, Dynamic, If Less Recognized than ‘Bawlmerese’”, as well as a short video in which I weigh in on language variation in the city, and an interactive lexicon. Leave me a comment and let me know your favorite Baltimore slang!
