Dialects, Englishes, Creoles, and Education


This volume brings together a multiplicity of voices – both theoretical and practical – on the complex politics, challenges, and strategies of educating students – in North America and worldwide – who are speakers of diverse or nonstandard varieties of English, creoles, and hybrid varieties of English, such as African American Vernacular English, Caribbean Creole English, Tex Mex, West African Pidgin English, and Indian English, among others. The number of such students is increasing as a result of the spread of English, internal and global migration, and increased educational access. Dialects, Englishes, Creoles, and Education offers:
*a sociohistorical perspective on language spread and variation;
*analysis of related issues such as language attitudes, identities, and prescribed versus actual language use; and
*practical suggestions for pedagogy.
