English Is My Native Language . . . or so I Believe.
Nero, Shondel J.
TESOL Quarterly, v31 n3 p585-593 Aut 1997
Analyzed the spoken and written language of Caribbean college students who consider themselves to be native speakers of English. Discusses the students' linguistic self-perception as well as the morphosyntactic and discourse features that emerge when they write in standard English. The study suggests that anglophone Caribbean students should be treated as neither native speakers of English or as English-as-a-Second-Language students. (JL)
