Title: Varieties of English
Subtitle: Volume 2: The Americas and the Caribbean
Edited By: Edgar W. W. Schneider
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sp/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110196368-1
Description:

This volume gives a detailed overview of the varieties of English spoken in
the Americas and the Caribbean, including regional, social and ethnic
dialects (such as Southern US, Canadian or Chicano English) as well as
Caribbean creoles from the Bahamas to Suriname.

The chapters, written by widely acclaimed specialists, provide concise and
comprehensive information on the phonological, morphological and syntactic
characteristics of each variety discussed.

The articles are followed by exercises and study questions. The exercises
are geared towards students and can be used for classroom assignments as
well as for self study in preparation for exams. Instructors can use the
exercises, sound samples and interactive maps to enhance their classroom
presentations and to highlight important language features.

The accompanying CD-ROM contains interactive maps and speech samples that
supplement the printed articles and offer material and data for further
research.

The rich detail found in the chapters as well as the valuable tools on the
CD-Rom make this survey of English Varieties a mainstay for researchers and
teachers.
