Mauritian Creole: An Introduction.
Goodman, Morris F.; And Others
The format of this 23-unit course in Mauritian Creole is based on "microwave" cycles, each cycle beginning with the introduction of new material and ending with the use of that material in communication. A small amount of new material is introduced at a time (usually in a monolog, drill, or dialog) which, after a brief bit of practice is used for communication (in a communication activity or a dialog). An introductory section presents a short description of the history of this form of Creole, considered the national language by many Mauritians, notes on the spelling, and suggestions to the student and the teacher for using the material. Appended are additional dialogs and a section on pronunciation to provide practice on some of the aspects of Mauritian Creole likely to prove troublesome for American learners. An English-Mauritian Creole glossary concludes the text. (AMM)
