Perhaps a phone book from that area, with a list of bookstores would help. I wrote a paper on the language in the 70's, if I remember correctly, most of my sources, were magazine articles. Did you try an encyclopedia? Then checking their sources?

My young patron is interested in getting a book or tape on learning Gullah. I tried the Illinois state database, but found only weighty tomes that seemed to be more on the history and development of Gullah as opposed to a "Conversational Gullah in 7 Days" sorta thing. Do any East coast w*mb*ts have a hint for me? TIA Pam McLaughlin Phone: 847 566-8702 Fremont Public Library FAX: 847 566-0204 470 N.
