In this issue of
the newsletter, the scope is widened to include more information
on African American Vernacular English and Australian Aboriginal
English. Although these minority dialects are not strictly pidgins
or creoles, they originate from language contact and the issues
relating to their use in educational contexts are similar.
The scope is also
widened to include for the first time some information on the use
of West African English-lexified pidgins and creoles in education.
