Dictionary of Caribbean English Usage
Click to enlarge

The Dictionary of Caribbean English Usage is the first attempt for over four hundred years to provide an authentic record of current English from the Caribbean archipelago, Guyana, and Belize.

Drawing its data from a broad range of enquiry through teacher workshops in 22 territories in 18 states, from speech recordings and over 1,000 written sources of Caribbean literature, reference works, magazines, pamphlets, and newspapers, the Dictionary surveys a range of over 20,000 words and phrases and includes hundreds of illustrative citations.

With a specially designed system of labelling, the Dictionary offers maximum levels of clarity and accessibility.  Providing four levels of identification from Creole to Formal, and with labels to denote social or grammatical register, it also gives particular focus to Indic and French Creole loan-words.  Etymological and Usage Notes are included, as well as a short supplement listing Caribbean French and Spanish equivalents to Caribbean English items selected from the main work.

Covering as it does a large number of independent and non-contiguous states, the Dictionary of Caribbean English Usage is not only an instrument of education wherever Carribean people live in the world but also a unique contribution to international lexicography and the record of World English.

First published by Oxford University Press in 1996, the Dictionary of Caribbean English usage is now available in a paperback edition for the first time.
