Language

Sometimes the language of Scout will be that of her as a child; other times, she will be speaking in the voice of an adult

Atticus uses formal speech

Calpurnia uses “white language” in the Finch house and switches to “black jargon” when amidst blacks

The Ewells use foul words and obscenities

Jem, Scout, and Dill will use slang words, typical of their age

Tom Robinson uses language typical of the southern black such as “suh” for “sir” and “chillun” for “children”

Various derogatory terms for blacks will be used such as “nigger,” “darky,” “Negroes,” and “colored folk” – Lee uses such language to keep her novel naturally in sync with common language of the times
