Originally published in 1930, reprinted from the original. "This volume is one of three which have grown out of a study of Negro culture on St. Helena Island, South Carolina, under the joint auspices of the Institute for Research in Social Science of the University of North Carolina and the Social Science Research Council. [... It ] deals with certain major aspects of the folk culture of St. Helena Island, namely, dialect, folk songs, and folklore. The section on dialect attempts to describe the Gullah dialect traits.

The general reader may be disappointed in such a discussion ... "
