Title: Variation in the Caribbean
Subtitle: From creole continua to individual agency
Edited By: Lars Hinrichs
Joseph T. Farquharson
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=CLL%2037
Series Title: Creole Language Library 37
Description:

The study of linguistic variation in the Caribbean has been central to the
emergence of Pidgin and Creole Linguistics as an academic field. It has
yielded influential theory, such as the (post-)creole continuum or the
'Acts of Identity' models, that has shaped sociolinguistics far beyond
creole settings. This volume collects current work in the field and focuses
on methodological and theoretical innovations that continue, expand, and
update the dialog between Caribbean variation studies and general
sociolinguistics.
