Dear all,

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.

Best wishes,


Linguistic Field(s): Language Acquisition
