Earliest St Helenian English in writing
Evidence from the St Helena Consultations (1682–1723)
The early formation phase of St Helenian English saw input of a standard-like variety of English, non-standard Southern English as well as of restructured varieties of English and other languages (Portuguese, French, Malagasy). This chapter analyses some of the earliest records available, the St Helena Consultations, compiled between 1682 and 1723. It aims at documenting the presence and function of these varieties on the island and retraces their importance for the evolution of a local variety on St Helena.
