(No. 8)




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.

Unfortunately, not many reports were received for this issue. The main purpose of this newsletter is to exchange information. So if you have any information about the use of a pidgin, creole or minority dialect in educa-tion, please send it.

Please note the change of mailing address below. I’ll be living in Hawai‘i for a while. (It’ll be tough, but someone’s got to do it!)
