Abstract:The diploma paper Characteristics of Black English Vernacular in the novel The Color Purple deals with Black English Vernacular. The main aims are to present the development of Black English and Black English Vernacular through time, to present and get to know the famous black writers through history, to get to know where Black English Vernacular stands in contemporary literature, to compare Black English Vernacular to Standard English, and to analyse the use of Black English Vernacular in Alice Walker’s masterpiece The Color Purple. African Americans had to fight hard to keep their language alive; their language was a means to communicate and to keep their spirits high through different trials. Different prejudices existed connected to the Black English Vernacular and speaking it automatically meant that the speaker was looked upon as someone illiterate and inferior. But black people were strong and proud of their language and with their infinite effort they succeeded to preserve something that would become; one of the most interesting parts of the English language. The first part of the diploma paper is theoretical; in the second part we analysed and compared Black English Vernacular to Standard American English. We applied the analysis to Celie’s and Nettie’s emotions and later compared the ways they spoke - according to their different life periods.
Keywords:Black English, Black English Vernacular, the novel The Color Purple, linguistic style.

Title:Značilosti črnske angleščine v knjigi Barva škrlata.
Abstract:Diplomsko delo Značilnosti črnske angleščine v knjigi Barva škrlata predstavlja besedišče črnske angleščine. Glavni cilji so: predstaviti razvoj črnske angleščine in njenega besedišča skozi čas; predstaviti in spoznati slavne črnske avtorje skozi zgodovino; seznaniti se z mestom, ki ga zavzema črnska angleščina v današnji sodobni literaturi; spoznati Alice Walker in njeno mojstrovino Barva škrlata in nazadnje, primerjati besedišče črnske angleščine s standardno angleščino ter analizirati rabo črnske angeščine v romanu Alice Walker, Barva škrlata. Pripadniki črnske rase so se morali zelo boriti, da so ohranili svoj jezik pri življenju. Služil jim je kot komunikacijsko in motivacijsko sredstvo, ter jim je bil spodbuda v različnih preizkušnjah. Skozi čas so obstajali različni predsodki povezani s črnsko angleščino, saj je bil njen govorec gledan kot nekdo, ki je nepismen in manjvreden. Kljub temu so pripadniki črnske rase ostali močni in ponosni na svoj jezik ter so ga z neskončnim trudom uspeli ohraniti. Črnska angleščina je tako postala ena izmed najbolj zanimivih delov današnje angleščine. Prvi del diplomskega dela je teoretičen, v drugem delu smo analizirali in primerjali črnsko angleščino s standardnim angleškim jezikom. Poglobili smo se v Celijina in Nettijina čustva in kasneje primerjali, kakšen je bil njun jezikovni stil glede na različna življenjska obdobja.
Keywords:Črnska angleščina, besedišče črnske angleščine, novela Barva škrlata, jezikovni slog.
