Abstract:

"Language Contact in the Danish West Indies: Giving Jack His Jacket" lays
bare crucial roles played by community and resistance in the refashioning of
heritage languages. Robin Sabino draws on her community relationships, her
fieldwork with a last speaker, and research from a range of disciplines, to
advance a revisionist history that elucidates the African linguistic resources
used to create community in a land those who were transhipped did not choose
and from which they could not return. In parallel fashion, the narrative locates
the partial appropriation of creole features by the colony's Euro-Caribbean
community in the emergence of local identity. It also traces the replacement of
Dutch and Virgin Islands Dutch Creole with their English counterparts.

Linguistic Field(s): Sociolinguistics
