چکیده مقاله:

In the world a variety of bilingual and multilingual countries are seen that some of them emerged from colonized ones. It can be said that there is a one way relation betweencolonized countries and bilingualism or even multilingualism. This study examines the effects that one bilingual (or multilingual) colonized country has upon another one. In other words, sometimes there is a challenge between two colonized countries that bothof them are bilingual. This paper gathers pieces of evidence to support its claim by acknowledging two regions, Jamaica and Martinique which are mentioned in WideSargasso Sea by Jean Rhys. Martinique is an island in the east of Caribbean Sea. It is one of the regions of France so it becomes part of the European Union. Although manyof its inhabitants speak Antillean Creole (Créole Martiniquais)its official language is French. Martiniquan Creole is grounded on French, Carib and African languages with features of English, Spanish, and Portuguese. The other region is Jamaica which becamean English colony in 1655. Its official language is English. Jamaicans mainly speak an English-African Creole language named Jamaican Patois. Jamaican Patois was shapedfrom a base of English words with features of re-formed grammar, with vocabularies from Africanand also Native American language and some of its archaic features are indicative of Irish English. Results suggest that language, and here bilingualism is a means by which one colonized country oppresses another colonized country
