Abstract:

This volume, a detailed empirical study of the creole English spoken
in the Bahamian capital, Nassau, contributes to our understanding of
both urban creoles and tense-aspect marking in creoles. The first part
traces the development of a creole in the Bahamas via
socio-demographic data and outlines its current status and functions
vis-à-vis the standard in politics, the media, and education. The
linguistic chapters combine typological and variationist methods to
describe exhaustively a comprehensive grammatical subsystem, past
temporal reference, offering a discourse-based approach to such
controversial categories as the preverbal past marker.The quantitative
analysis of variable past inflection, finally, tests not only
well-known constraints, such as stativity or social class, but also
ethnographically determined ones, such as narrative type. Its results
are relevant not only to the study of Caribbean English-lexifier
creoles and related varieties, such as African American English, but
also to variation and change in urban dialects generally.
