Reseña/Biosketch:

Sally J. Delgado is an assistant professor in the English Department of the University of Puerto Rico in Cayey. Her interests in historical dialectology and theories of creole genesis are explored in research on Ship English of the early colonial Caribbean. She is currently working on research in dialectology, discourse analysis and preparation in English, specifically for academic and scientific purposes among Hispanic students. She has published several articles on maritime culture and history, education, and sociolinguistics and is active at local and international conferences to disseminate her research findings. She works on the editing board of an organization that publishes two volumes of scholarship every year based on the languages, literatures and cultures of the Caribbean and the Greater Caribbean. She also uses her editing skills to help Hispanic undergraduate students publish their research and creative work in English.
