The New Register of Caribbean English Usage is a pan-Caribbean publication which seeks to provide a representative sample of the development of Caribbean English usage since 1992, after the Dictionary of Caribbean English Usage was completed. The New Register, which was intended to be a companion work to the Dictionary of Caribbean English Usage on a smaller scale, comprises about seven hundred items, including words with new senses or usages, acronyms, and abbreviations that have emerged out of the ecological and cultural domains of the CARICOM territories, from Guyana to Belize. The continued inventorying and chronicling of Caribbean culture and history are vital in helping us to recognize and understand our unique Caribbean identity, and this is an essential reference book for students and educators in the region and in the diaspora.
