Caribbean English and Adult Literacy.
Harris, Roxy
Intended for adult literacy tutors in Britain who teach West Indian students, this booklet provides information about the history of Caribbean Creole English and about the ways in which it differs from Standard English. The five chapters contain discussions of the Caribbean setting; the differences between Pidgin and Creole English; Caribbean Creole English, including its grammatical features, pronunciation patterns, implications for phonics instruction, and suggestions for teaching; student attitudes toward Caribbean Creole English; and ways of dealing directly with Creole English that do not offend West Indian students, including the use of cartoon strips and poetry and other literature written in that language.
