Languages of the Caribbean are fascinating and have been studied extensively. It is a particularly fertile ground for the study of pidgins and creoles and the interplay of language and culture and society. However, the languages of St Vincent and the Grenadines have not received the comprehensive attention they deserve. Because the work accomplished has been published in a wide variety of sources the literature is difficult to locate. Despite the existence of <i>Linguistics and Language Behavior Abstracts</i> (the primary bibliographic resource in the field of linguistics) the linguistics literature is often found in other sources. In addition, the literature of the subfield of pidgins and creoles is even more scattered and harder to find. There is no comprehensive compilation of literature on the languages of St Vincent &#38; the Grenadines. The classic <i>A bibliography of pidgin and creole languages</i> (Reinecke, John E. et al. Honolulu: University of Hawai&#8217;i Press, 1975) has never been updated. Keywords: creoles; language contact; varieties of English; bibliography
