Abstract:

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