Englishes of the Caribbean: A research bibliography


Schmalz, Mirjam; Meer, Philipp (2023). Englishes of the Caribbean: A research bibliography. World Englishes, 42(1):169-183.

Abstract

The research bibliography presented in this paper lists some of the major research outputs on Englishes in the Caribbean. While selected foundational studies are listed, the focus lies on works published since the year 2000. Considering the linguistic diversity of the anglophone Caribbean, the publications listed include works on English-based Creoles, Englishes, mesolectal language use and mixed codes, as well as English-related contact varieties. A particular focus is on works investigating standardized (or standardizing) varieties of English spoken in the region. Efforts were made to represent both larger and smaller territories and islands. Potential limitations notwithstanding, we hope that this bibliography will prove useful to researchers and students interested in Caribbean varieties of English.
