Abstract

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 <i>St Helena Consultations</i>, 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.
