Front Cover
Department of Linguistics, Research School of Pacific Studies, Australian National University, 1988 - Creole dialects - 328 pages
Best friends tell you everything; about their kitchen renovation; about their little girl's new school. They tell you how he's leaving her for a younger model. Best friends don't tell lies. They don't take up residence on your couch for weeks. They don't call lawyers. They don't make you choose sides. Best friends don't keep secrets about their past. Best friends don't always stay best friends.
