Teaching English as a Second Dialect in Liberia
Candler, W. J.
English Language Teaching Journal, 31, 4, 321-325, Jul 77
Liberian English differs from standard educated English. English teachers in Liberia are attempting to teach standard spoken English rather than the Liberian dialect, using TEFL strategies. This article discusses the phonological, syntactic, morphological, lexical and semantic characteristics of Liberian English and the consequences for English teaching strategy. (CHK)
