This text concerns itself primarily with the Haitian and Jamaican Creoles, which can best be described as amalgams of European languages and various African linguistic patterns. Haitian Creole is a blend of French and African linguistic patterns. In addition, several chapters dwell on the Afro-American Community Dialect, the linguistic system of many Black Americans which contains a variety of structural features often found in creolized languages, as well as Gullah, a creolized form of English spoken in South Carolina. Includes a description of the grammatical systems of Haitian Creole, Jamaican Creole, and the Afro-American Community Dialect; an indication of the types of problems that Haitian, Jamaican, and Afro-American students may experience in learning Standard English because of linguistic interferences from their first languages; and a compilation of innovative techniques for teaching Standard English grammar and sound system to speakers of English as a Standard Dialect, English as a Second Language and English as a Foreign Language.
