I don't know if they are still spoken or not but by coincidence, I came across a grammar reference a few minutes ago, Liddicoat, Anthony. 1994. Grammar of the Norman French of the Channel Islands: the dialects of Jersey and Sark. 452 pp., phonology, syntax, and lexicon. Mouton de Gruyter. The price to SSILA members is $38 US, retail elsewhere is probably about 3-4 times that (a guess based on past experience.)
