Subject: Pidgins and Creoles, Creolization of Language, by Michelle AuCoin, Sandra Billings, and Sheri Pargmen



Robert Chaudenson, Director of the Institut d'Etudes
Cr�oles et Francophones, Aix-en-Provence, Revised in
Collaboration with Salikoko S. Mufwene, University of
Chicago and Translated by Michelle AuCoin, Sandra Billings,
and Sheri Pargmen CREOLIZATION OF LANGUAGE
AND CULTURE

Substantially revised, Creolization of Language and Culture
is the first English edition of Robert Chaudenson's
landmark text Des iles, des hommes, des langues.
Chaudenson argues against the traditional account of creole
genesis taking full account of the peculiar linguistic and
social factors at play in colonial societies. This is an
accessible book that makes important contributions to the
study of pidgin and creole language varieties and to the
development of contemporary European languages outside
Europe. Key features include an analysis of current
debates on the development of creoles and discussions of
human culture including music, medicine, cooking, magic,
and folklore.
