Dictionary of Jamaican English
Click to enlarge

"Originally published by Cambridge University Press in 1967and then revised as a second edition in 1980, this classic study has never before been available in a paperback edition.  The method and plan of the dictionary are basically those of the Oxford English Dictionary, but oral sources have been extensively tapped in addition to detailed coverage of literature published in or about Jamaica since 1655.

The dictionary is a mine of information about the Caribbean and its dialects, about the history of English and its dialects, and about Creole languages and general linguistic processes.

Entries give the pronunciation, part-of-speech and usage labels, spelling variants, etymologies and dated citations, as well as definitions.  Systematic indexing indicates the extent to which the lexis is shared with other Caribbean countries: Suriname, Guyana, Trinidad, Barbados, Nicaragua, and Belize."

The Dictionary of Jamaican English takes an extensive look at creolized languages and is a must have for any student of West Indian culture and society.
