EMP, 2009 Pristine New Book. 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.
