Through an analaysis of linguistic patterns and speakers’ social networks, this study examines how the descendants of Barbadian and Grenadian immigrants from Porto Velho, Brazil contribute either to the maintenance of the English language and the consequent preservation of bilingualism, or to the dominance of the Portuguese language. The work also analyzes how these patterns are linked to group conceptions, to ethnic identity and to social and economic status.
In Portuguese.

Reviews

“. . . opens the door to new studies regarding the Afro-Amazonic peoples, which have received little attention up to now in Brazil and in the rest of the world.” – Prof. Júlio César Barreto Rocha, Federal University, Rondônia, Brazil

“Through the description of the morphosyntactical aspects of the English spoken by the group, the author showed parallelisms with the Creole English spoken in Barbados, with other Atlantic Creoles, varieties of non Standard English, some African languages and with Brazilian Portuguese.” – Prof. Graça Maria Teixeira da Silva, Federal University, Acre, Brazil
