Title: "Ethnolects" and Varieties of Canadian English
Author: Hoffman, Michol F.
Walker, James A.
Identifier: 00321
Abstract: ‘Foreign’ language features of first-generation Canadians do not persist in their children and grandchildren. ‘Ethnolects’ should be viewed as ways that speakers of different ethnic backgrounds construct and convey their identity, rather than an inability to acquire English.
