Due Respect PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Due Respect free pdf Professor Robert Le Page was a pioneer in the field of English and Creole linguistics in the Caribbean. This collection of papers in honour of Le Page addresses various topics in the field, pointing out the ways in which Le Page and his work have influenced, stimulated or been ignored by others. This is the first book on Caribbean language studies to include original sections on language in education, speakers' behaviour in informal discourse and language structure. Based on sound linguistic scholarship, the thirteen chapters are organized in three sections: Pedagogical and Sociological- Structure- and Discourse. Caribbean linguists have long been concerned that the findings of scholars in this field have been inaccessible to teachers and others interested in linguistics in the Caribbean. This book is geared for a wide audience, including school teachers, university students and teachers of linguistics in the Caribbean and the United States, and researchers on Creole languages.
