London Jamaican: Language Systems in Interaction

Cover
Longman, 1993 - 192 Seiten
This sociolinguistic series examines the relationships between language, society and social change. It takes a critical approach to the subject, aiming to challenge current orthodoxies and deal with familiar topics in new ways. This volume provides an insight into the language use of Afro-Caribbeans in London. It places emphasis on the linguistic background of the community and in particular on young people of the first and second British-born generations. In addition, it explores the use of different language varieties within families, and demonstrates how young bilingual users switch rapidly between English and Creole in the course of everyday conversation. Bringing together number of different approaches, this case study offers an account of adolescent bilingual behaviour, and examines the history and future potential of Black English within the British education system. Conversational data, often recorded by black adolescent themselves, is used.
