Free
SKU: cje-30-2-8

This paper will discuss an activist approach made at the University of the West Indies, Mona to implement a 'Speaking Across the Curriculum' (SAC) Programme, as a response to the University's Strategic Plan of 2007-2012. Although it has long been agreed on that the University needs a programme instilled in its curricula that would ensure the production of graduates that are competent and effective oral communicators, to date no such programme exists.

Can Computers Talk Creole? Caribbean Creole Languages in the World of Micro-computers

Free
SKU: cje-14-3-4

In the modern world, one of the major means of storing written information and subsequently gaining access to it, is the computer. With some Caribbean Creole Languages like Haitian and Papiamentu already having officially entered the written domain, and many likely to follow, the question of the relationship between these languages and modern computer technology becomes quite relevant.

Comparative Afro-American by Mervyn C. Alleyne, Karoma Publishers, Inc., Ann Arbor, 1980, 253p.

Free
SKU: cje-8-1-6

This work is a very important contribution to the understanding of the language and linguistic heritage of Afro-Americans, this last term being used by Alleyne to refer to all people of African descent in the Western Hemisphere. In relation to those Afro-American language varieties spoken in the Caribbean, on which this book has tended to focus, this is one of only a very small number of book-length works produced so far. The bulk of the work on Afro-Caribbean language varieties is dispersed all over the place, usually in the form of articles in academic journals.
