This work examines the emergence of pidgins and creoles and the controversies surrounding current theories about them.

Second dialect acquisition by Jeff Siegel( )

21 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 637 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is involved in acquiring a new dialect - for example, when Canadian English speakers move to England or African American English-speaking children go to school? How is such learning different from second language acquisition (SLA), and why is it in some ways more difficult? These are some of the questions Jeff Siegel examines in this book, the first to focus specifically on second dialect acquisition (SDA). Siegel surveys a wide range of studies that throw light on SDA. These concern dialects of English as well as those of other languages, including Dutch, German, Greek, Norwegian, Portuguese and Spanish. He also describes the individual and linguistic factors that affect SDA, such as age, social identity and language complexity. The book discusses problems faced by students who have to acquire the standard dialect without any special teaching, and presents some educational approaches that have been successful in promoting SDA in the classroom"--

Vernacular education in the South Pacific by Jeff Siegel( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

World-wide research has clearly shown the educational, social, cultural and financial benefits of vernacular education - ie using the mother tongue or an already known language of wider communication in the education system. In all 12 South Pacific countries covered by this study vernaculars are used in some form of education but there are many differences among them. The Melanesian countries - Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu -have many characteristics in common: an extremely large number of vernacular languages, a widespread lingua franca (Melanesian Pidgin), very low adult literacy rates and low retention rates in the formal education system. In these countries, formal education has been solely in the ex-colonial language or languages (English and French)
