Abstract:

This book provides an alphabetical list of popular words and phrases used in Grenada Dialect, along with rules and guidelines for pronunciation and spelling, omissions, vowel combinations, and figures of orthography. The text provides word entries, definitions for each entry, word etymology, where possible, and speech samples as spoken by the people of Grenada. Invaluable information is provided here for students of language and dialect, as well as for those simply interested in the way dialect is created and used, and where it could possibly be headed as time moves along. The fact that all language, including dialect, is living, and can change form and meaning based on common usage over a period of time, makes this book an important tool for the study of dialects, as they emerge and change.
