Abstract:

This is the second edition of the authoritative Dictionary of Jamaican
English, first published in 1967. This edition includes a greatly extended
supplement and offers a systematic indexing of the extent to which the
lexis is shared with other Caribbean countries: Surinam, Guyana, Trinidad,
Barbados, Nicaragua and Belize. 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. A great deal of care has been
taken to trace the etymologies not only of English, Scots and Irish but
also of African, Portuguese and Spanish, French, Amerindian, general
sea-faring and other words. The Dictionary is thus a mine of information
about the Caribbean and its dialects, about the history of English and its
dialects, about Creole languages and about general linguistic processes.
