- Dear Tristan de Cunha group
this is my first entry to the group.
I am a postgraduate student at the University of Umeå in Sweden and I
am studying the varieties of English used around the world. I have
become especially interested in the language of Tristan de Cunha (
saw the documentary about T.d.C. with the inhabitant who moved to
Glasgow, Scotland). I know that there is some materail written about
the English spoken on the island (by Professor A. Zettersten of
I would dearly like to continue the professor's work - does anyone
have any info about T.d.C. English/ information about language on
the island. I would love to take some of my study time on the
island - perhaps in a couple of years from now - once I have
organized my area of studies more clearly.
Best wishes to the group from an interested member.
Greetings from Norway
