African American Vernacular English is a social dialect or a Non-Standard variety of American English which contains different phonological and grammatical features with Standard English (SE). This study aims at analyzing the selected grammatical of African American Vernacular English (AAVE) features in “Fruitvale Station” movie which includes the use of negative marker ain’t as the alternation of auxiliarynot or benot, negative concord or double negation, copula absence, remote been, generalization of is and was, completive done, the use of objective pronoun them as a demonstrative and simple past of hadpast form of a verb. The study focused on the theories of Howe and Walt Wolfram about African American Vernacular English and adjusted the findings to the Standard English form. The writer used note taking as the tool to find out the data. The data were analyzed using descriptive qualitative method. The results of the research defined the use of negative marker ain’t as in “she ain’t say that” for “she does not say that” in SE. This function shows the alternation of auxiliary+not or be+not and as negative marker to stress the negative meaning of the sentence. Copula absence such as in “Osc, where you at?” for “Osc, where are you at?” in SE. The movie also uses the AAVE verb phrase feature remote been such as “he been shoot” for “he had been shoot” in SE. The movie also shows the use of auxiliary is for pronoun you as in “what the fuck is you doing bruh?” for “what are you doing brother?”. The writer concluded that African American Vernacular English was used by actors in the movie to communicate each other and the grammatical features of African American Vernacular English are different from Standard English grammatical rules.
