Language on the uniquely diverse Caribbean college campus

People who live in a milieu where more than one type of speech-- discourse-- or language or dialect is used end up very accustomed to recognizing when to switch from one register or discourse to another. The peoples of the Caribbean are particularly adept at doing this. To do this well implies knowing how to interpret linguistic and non-linguistic cues.
