We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.
I'm trying to identify developmental norms for children acquiring Caribbean English. The literature seems very sparse, so any studies that you are aware of will likely be very useful. AAE is a close match to Caribbean English in some respects and I've been able to identify some studies in this area (namely by Shelley Velleman and colleagues).
If you don't know of any studies in Caribbean English, I would be grateful for references on AAE. I am particularly interested in phonological development but other areas are also of interest.
