This book offers a detailed sociolinguistic treatment of 'London Jamaican', a descendant of West Indian creole transplanted to the UK and now in use by young Londoners of West Indian descent. The focus is on the relationship of this creole to Jamaican creole and to white varieties of British English in London.
