It is the result of over eight years' worth of research conducted in both Jamaica and Africa, and is a recognition of the trans-cultural influence of the "Repatriation Movement" and other diasporic movements. The method and materials adopted in this book point to a constant spread and diffusion of Jamaican culture in Ethiopia. This is reinforced by the universalistic appeal of Rastafarianism and Reggae music and their ability to transcend borders. The data gathered here focus on how an Anglophone-based Creole has developed new speech-forms and has been hybridized and cross-fertilized in contact situations and by new media sources.--Provided by publisher."@en ;
