作者簡介

"This Book Presents A Rich Global Take On Language Practice In Haiti And The Haitian Diaspora, Especially In North America. The Contributors, Most Of Them Established Haitian Scholars, Present Informative Perspectives On The Colonial And Postcolonial History Of Haiti (Focusing On The Contacts Of Populations And Of Their Languages, As Well As On The Consequences Of The Gradual Demise Of Its Formal Economy Since The Haitian Revolution). They Also Explore The Emergence And Structures Of Haitian Creole, Its Ethnographic Status Against That Of French, And Issues Regarding Its Graphic System And Its Use In Education. Linguists And Nonlinguists Alike Will Appreciate Having So Touch Useful Information Provided In A Prose That Is Very Accessible. Arthur K. Spears And Carole M Berotte Joseph Have Set An Outstanding Example That Can Be Followed For Other Creole Vernaculars."uSalikoko S. Mufwene, University Of Chicago

"This Book Could Not Be More Timely, When So Many Observers Worldwide Are Analyzing Haiti As They Assist In The Rebuilding Of This Long-Beleaguered Nation. As It Turns Out, One Of The Fundamental Impediments In Building A Better Haiti For All Has Long Been A Thorough Misuse Of Language In Its Education System: French Is Still Used As The Major Language Of Instruction Even Though It Is, In Effect, A Foreign Language For The Majority Of Haitians. These Chapters Will Instill Better Knowledge And Respect Of Haiti And Haitian Creole And Will Promote Haiti's National Language Both As An Indispensable Language Of Instruction At All Levels Of Haiti's Education System And As An Important Topic Of Research In Haiti And Beyond. Such Promotion Of Haitian Creole Will Contribute To The Socioeconomic Betterment Of Monolingual Haitian Creole Speakersuthe Vast Majority Of Haitians In Haiti. Altogether The Contributors To This Anthology Are To Be Commended For Their Exemplary Use Of Scholarship Toward Progressive Social Change. The Book's Lucid Analyses Of The Impact Of Neocolonial Ideology On Language Policy Arc Also Relevant To Language-Related Social Struggles Outside Of Haiti (Witness, Say, The 'Ebonies' Debate In The United States)."uMichel Degraff, Massachusetts Institute Of Technology

The Haitian Creole Language Is The First Book That Deals Broadly With A Language That Has Too Long Lived In The Shadow Of French. With Chapters Contributed By The Leading Scholars In The Study Of Haitian Creole, It Provides Information On This Language's History, Structure, And Use In Education, Literature, And Social Interaction. Although Spoken By Virtually All Haitians, Creole Was Recognized As The Co-Official Language Of Haiti Only A Little Over Twenty Years Ago. The Haitian Creole Language Provides Essential Information For Professionals, Other Service Providers, And Creole Speakers Who Are Interested In Furthering The Use Of Creole In Haiti And The Haitian Diaspora. Increased Language Competencies Would Greatly Promote The Education Of Creole Speakers And Their Participation In The Social And Political Life Of Their Countries Of Residence. This Hook Is An Indispensable Tool For Those Seeking Knowledge About The Centrality Of Language In The Affairs Of Haiti, Its People, And Its Diaspora.
