Jamaican creole: a linguistic study of grammar and the post-creole continuum
2000 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

This paper is a linguistic study of Jamaican Creole grammar, and in what way it differs from Standard English. The grammar analysis is based on a book with several poems written in Jamaican Creole. I have also in some measure tried to examine the Post-Creole Continuum, which is of particular interest when studying the language of Jamaica and its variability. A historical background, the development from Pidgin to Creole, and a description of the Post-Creole Continuum are provided as an introduction to the linguistic material.
