Title: A Contrastive Grammar of Islander
Subtitle: Caribbean Standard English, Spanish
Written By: Angela Bartens
Series Title: Academia Scientiarum Fennica Humaniora 326
Description:

This is the first contrastive grammar and at the same time a comprehensive description of Islander, the English-based creole of San Andrés and
Providence. The contrastive approach and especially the inclusion of three languages is motivated by the educational needs of the speech community. In addition to the grammar part, this book includes a theoretical introduction, a presentation of the phonetic and graphematic systems of Islander and a study of the occurrence and vitality of lexical Africanisms.
