Jamaican Creole Syntax

Author: Beryl Loftman Bailey
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 9780521040822
Release Date: 1966-01
Genre: Creole dialects

Originally published in 1966, Beryl Loftman Bailey's book was one of the first on the Jamaican Creole language, its origins and its influence on the teaching of English in Jamaica. A native Jamaican herself, Bailey's personal experience of both learning and later teaching English in the Caribbean was a springboard to her interest in the problems of language interference in contact situations. She challenged a notion prevalent throughout English teachers in Caribbean at the time that Creole was a 'dialect' not a language and therefore need not be considered in teaching. The social implications of this view are also explored. Bailey's detailed analysis of Jamaican Creole phonology, morphology, kernel sentence structure and simple and double-based transformations provided valuable insights into the foundations of the language and its educational implications.

Genre: Fiction

Sechs Lebenswege, die sich unmöglich kreuzen können: darunter ein amerikanischer Anwalt, der um 1850 Ozeanien erforscht, ein britischer Komponist, der 1931 vor seinen Gläubigern nach Belgien flieht, und ein koreanischer Klon, der in der Zukunft wegen des Verbrechens angeklagt wird, ein Mensch sein zu wollen. Und dennoch sind diese Geschichten miteinander verwoben. Mitchells originelle Menschheitsgeschichte katapultiert den Leser durch Räume, Zeiten, Genres und Erzählstile und liest sich dabei so leicht und fesselnd wie ein Abenteuerroman. «Mitchell kartographiert Seelen und schreibt Weltliteratur.» (Neue Zürcher Zeitung) «David Mitchell nimmt den Leser mit auf eine literarische Achterbahnfahrt. Und man wünscht sich, diese Reise möge nie enden.» (A. S. Byatt) «Einer der wichtigsten jungen britischen Autoren.» (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung)

L2 Acquisition and Creole Genesis

Author: Claire Lefebvre
Publisher: John Benjamins Publishing
ISBN: 9789027253026
Release Date: 2006-01-01
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

In this volume, second language (L2) acquisition researchers and creolists engage in a dialogue, focusing on processes at work in L2 acquisition and creole genesis. The volume opens with an overview of the relationship between L2 acquisition and pidgins/creoles (Siegel). The first group of papers addresses current language contact at a societal or an individual level (Smith; Terrill and Dunn; Bruhn de Garavito and Atoche; Liceras et al.; Muller). The second section focuses on processes characterizing various stages of L2 acquisition and creole genesis: relexification and transfer from the L1 and their role in the initial state (Sprouse; Schwartz; Kouwenberg; Aboh; Ionin). Chapters in the third section discuss processes involved in developing grammars, namely, reanalysis and restructuring (Sanchez; Brousseau and Nikiema; Steele and Brousseau). The final section concentrates on fossilization and the end state (Cornips and Hulk; Montrul; Lardiere). Between them, the chapters cover lexical, morphological, phonological, semantic and syntactic properties of interlanguage grammars and creole grammars.
